These photographs are provided for conservation purposes, education, and historical insight. I do not recommend that inexperienced individuals visit sacred places. This is not a guide and no locations will be provided in any circumstance. Remember, these are fragile, deeply important, and irreplaceable spiritual and scientific resources. They are not appropriate for irreverent or casual activities. Poor visitation practices could result in the violation of applicable state and federal laws if damages were to occur. Furthermore, individuals could precipitate vandalism and looting to archaeological sites unwittingly (for example, by posting photographs online with contextual landscape features that can be identified by vandals/looters using satellite imagery). Please, exercise caution when sharing locations, even to individuals that have extensive experience visiting archaeological sites. Vast photograph collections of archaeological sites do not guarantee respectful behavior in any circumstance.

I recommend that everyone should review this information regardless of your experience with hiking and/or cultural resources.
