In Search of Intaglios, 2015

A couple of years ago, I read an article in High Country News ( about the Intaglios or Geoliths in the Mojave Desert in California. These are similar to the Nazca Lines in Peru and are sometimes called American Nazca Lines.

How come I had never heard of these before? So, I asked my wandering son about them. He had never heard of them either. So right then and there we planed on tracking them down and seeing them for ourselves. We were delayed a year because of our schedules, but finally, we made the trip.

You know the old story: it's the path you wander, not the destination that is important. No truer words were ever spoken, especially when you travel with my son, Greg. He is a born wanderer, and there is never a straight path to anything. So, of course, we wandered, we wandered, and we had a wonderful trip. Oh, and did I tell you about the stars? Oh, my, the stars! We hope you enjoy our trip too.
