The Blythe Intaglios are located 15-miles north of Blyth in the Colorado Desert. I consider the intaglios a must-see destination for anyone drive to/from Southern California.
The intaglios are easy to get to and are only an hour out of your way from the traveling the I-10.
There are over 200 intaglios in the Colorado Desert and mostly located along the Colorado River.
The Blythe Intaglios contain three human figures, two four-legged animals, and a spiral. The largest human figure in the Blythe Intaglio group is 171 feet long.
The intaglios are best viewed from the air s if you have a drone it is time to use it.
The intaglios are located down a dirt road so there is plenty of parking.
There is nearby Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land where you can boondock.
It is a privilege to have Blythe Intaglios for our enjoyment, so please practice Leave No Trace principles.
