Cane Site A

Overview

The White River Narrows Archeological District is an area of outstanding rock art that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There on one major site (Amphitheater) and four minor sites (Calendar Fence, Martian Home, Cane Site A, and Ash Hill) in this area.

Cane Site A is a small site composed of boulders on the end of a small rockpile. Many of the boulders are marked, including some near the top. The petroglyphs here are mostly abstract, but a few are representational. The west end of the boulder pile, while unmarked by humans, has some amazing lichens.

The BLM and Lincoln County opened this area to the public. The BLM printed a single-sheet flier, and Lincoln County printed a 55-page brochure with information about the site (including GPS coordinates) as part of their Get Primitive tourism campaign. Download the brochure from Lincoln County or snatch a copy here.
