Petroglyphs of Little Lake
The California Rock Art Foundation (CRAF) is hosting a field trip to Little Lake, California, hosted by Dr. Alan Garfinkel Gold.
Saturday, February 25, 2017
The Little Lake area encompasses 5,000 acres and contains several petroglyphs and pictographs dating to around 10,000 years ago, as well as the Stahl site exhibiting evidence of the Pinto Basin tradition dating between 5,000 and 2,000 years ago.
Much of the rock art is in the Coso tradition. There are images of atlatl, bear paws, projectile points, human and animal figures, and sheep. The lake is spring fed and formed about 5,000 years ago. There is a one million year old basalt flow along the eastern edge of the lake, and a prominent volcanic cinder cone to the north that formed about 10,000 years ago.
The field trip will be hosted by Dr. Alan Garfinkel Gold.
