Also called Blythe Geoglyphs these six giant works of art somewhat resemble much smaller cave petroglyphs. These glyphs use the earth itself as the canvas and medium. The smallest is 95 feet long and the largest is 167. Their creators may have been the Mohave and Quechan Indians, although no one is really sure who created them. The date they were created is unknown too, but they are believed to be between 450 and 2,000 years old. Ironically, the geoglyphs were not discovered by modern society until 1932 when George Palmer happened to be flying a helicopter in the area. Needless to say, it begs the question of how their creators were able to see them... (Submitted by Brooke Staggs)
