These photographs are provided for conservation purposes, education, and historical insight. I strongly discourage inexperienced individuals from visiting sacred places. These images are not provided as 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 you may trust. Remember that experience does not always equate to respectful behavior.
