Grapevine Canyon

Grapevine Canyon, Nevada, Rock Art, Petroglyphs, Mojave Desert

Grapevine Canyon is located near Laughlin, NV.  It’s part of the Spirit Mountains and contains TONS of petroglyphs.  The Mojave Indians inhabited this area for thousands of years and consider this land extremely sacred.  In fact, some native people will not enter parts of the Spirit Mountains (known as Avi-Kwame).  While no one is certain what much of the rock art means, it’s speculated that this area depicts parts of the Creation Mythology.  Staying within the Grapevine Canyon area, you can spend lots of time exploring all the rock art.  Continuing on into the Spirit Mountains will take you through cottonwood stands, amazing granite structures, water-sculpted narrows and a dry waterfall.
