The Mystery of the Blythe Intaglios

The unknown and the unexplainable has always fascinated many individuals. The innate sense of curiosity instantly kicks in when we find something that we cannot explain. There is, however, one place in California that has raised more feeling of awe than curiosity. Such place is Blythe, the home of the aptly named Blythe Intaglios.

Intaglios is the term used to describe anthropomorphic geoglyphs, a kind of illustrations that are generally more than 4 meters in length. These illustrations are made on the ground with the use of clastic rocks as well as stones, fragments, and leaves. While the most famous worldwide happens to be the Nazca lines which can be found in Peru, Blythe has its own tourist attraction in the form of the Blythe Intaglios.

The Blythe Intaglios can be found at the east side of the Big Maria Mountains. The grave pictographs of gigantic human beings were not found until the 1930s. However, most professionals believe that the intaglios date to as far back as 10,000 years ago. It is widely believed that these pictographs ceremonial in nature, and could have been done by the Mojave or Quechan Indians. Although tourists may not approach the figures closely, you can still see from a distance what the images are all about. This is the reason why it has been a popular hunt among those who are interested in archeology and history.

If you fancy a look at these intaglios, you would definitely need to book yourself in any of the motels in Blythe CA. One hotel in Blythe California that you might want to consider is the Americas Best Value Inn Blythe.
