Camel Tracks at Lake Mead


On Tuesday, Beamer and I took a short trip out to Lake Mead to find a 14 million year old camel track. My friend, Beamer, wanted to find this track for a long time. Nick provided us with the GPS waypoint making it much easier to find. This was not a hike, rather a drive in a wash and a very short walk (10 yards) to see the track. To be honest, it's hard for me to wrap my head around something that's 14 million years old. I am not going to give the waypoint due to the theft of petroglyphs at other locations around southern Nevada.
