About 18 miles north of Blythe on US 95 we stopped to explore these mysterious Giant Desert figures If you are in the area watch for the sign Blythe Intaglios. Definitely worth a stop.

It's nice to see and know that we have the remnants of mysterious art history in the most remote of places. Visiting a site like this gives you time to reflect on the vastness of humanity. If you're passing through, you should stop, see and reflect.

Thank you to everyone how has written a review on the Intaglios. We wouldn't have heard of them otherewise. We thought they were incredible. Not hard to find...on the lefthand side of 95, about 15 miles north of Blythe. It is signposted and the gravel road is not a problem for family cars. There are 2 parking areas, the first one has 2 fenced figures and be sure to continue up the road (not far) to the last and best preserved figure. The figures are over 100' in length, no one knows how old they are and they are magnificent.

As always, I was looking for something to see in the area we were traveling through. And I found this on the Trip Advisor site. I immediately thought of the photos I had seen of the geoglyphs in the Nazca Desert in Peru. Sure enough, that's just what they are, on a smaller scale for sure. But, still impressive. Can't believe someone found them and preserved them.
