Ancient Native American Intaglios in Blythe California


If you thought that ancient ruins would be perhaps the one phenemenon that couldn't be found in California, guess again.  Exhibit A is this fascinating drone video by contributor and pilot JordanB22 of the Blythe Intaglios, a series of ground inscriptions by pre-Columbian people.  Situated near the eponymously named town in the Colorado Desert east of Los Angeles, the figures are hard to discern other than from an aerial view.  Radiocarbon dating suggests they could date to as long ago as 1000 BC.
