Off we go for another adventure DesertDale has found for Kitfoxgal. What a wonder DesertDale is at finding things to keep Kitfoxgal happy on their adventures. He is A1 at that.
The Toqutma Cave site is culturally important to the Western Shoshone. Government had to get permission to enter the cave and make these photographs a presentation was made to the Council of the Yomba Shoshone Tribe at their reservation headquarters in the Reese River Valley. So a fence was agreed up on to be put across the mouth of the cave to protect the pictographs.
Toquima Cave is located on Pete’s Summit near Austin. There is a road that goes over the mountains to the Monitor Valley.
It was used for religious purposes by Native Americans for thousands of years. the cave contains pictographs. These paintings offer a view of the world from the people living in Nevada between 3,000 and 1,500 years ago.
There also is a camp sites there. Enjoy. Kitfoxgal
