Day Trip: Giant Blythe Intaglios, Oct. 12

Dear Campus,

The John M. Pfau Library invites you to join us on Saturday, October 12, for a day trip to learn about the Giant Blythe Intaglios – anthropomorphic geoglyphs – located in the Colorado Desert.

Carpools, including a large-capacity SUV sponsored by Associated Students Incorporated, will depart from campus at 7 a.m. and arrive back at approximately 6 p.m.  The group will meet at the flagpoles at entrance of the university.

Members of the La Cuna de Atzlan Sacred Site Protection Circle—including its founder, Alfredo Figueroa, author of Ancient Footprints of the Colorado River—will lead the tour of the intaglios.  This component of the trip will last 2-3 hours, depending on the number of questions asked, and require about 1.5 miles of walking.

Participants are encouraged to bring lunch, water, snacks, hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, and comfortable walking shoes (flip-flops and open-toed sandals are not advised.)

Copies of Ancient Footprints of the Colorado River will be provided as part of the excursion.

The trip is free and open to all CSUSB students, faculty, and staff.

For more information, contact Robie Madrigal, Pfau Library, at or (909) 537-5104.
