The Petroglyphs in Nevada

The Mystery of Pyramid Lake

So how did I end up at the Petroglyphs at Pyramid Lake in Nevada, you ask? Well, the other friend I visited in Otis was Gary Vey. He is quite a famous investigator of the petroglyph phenomena. We decided to go together through Oregon and see Pyramid Lake in Nevada. There are some amazing petroglyphs. We made a stopover at Crater Lake, the perfect area for photographers.

Further on, we crossed over to Nevada, which is primarily a desert area. There I could take some great pictures of the archeological site where you can find ancient writings carved into the stones. I took most of these photos on an Indian reservation around Pyramid Lake. Gary flew back to Oregon after that. The petroglyphs are  a big mystery you have to see for yourself—or even take some photos of them as long as you have the chance.

About the Author

Hi, my name is Christian Köhlert, and I am a photographer and digital content creator living most of the time in Montreux, Switzerland. In 2016, I went on an extended journey from Medicine Hat in Canada with my friend Jens. He built us a camper truck that brought us down to San Pedrito Beach in Baja California, Mexico. There, I learned surfing, so I came every year to enjoy the waves. If you like my photos in this post, I have many more in my Travel Photography Blog.
