The article talks about the geoglyphs at Fort Irwin, California, which are abstract alignments of fist-sized rocks covering a quarter of an acre. It notes that artifacts and oxidation of the rocks give clues about the formation's age. According to Luz Ramirez de Bryson, archeologist and cultural resources manager for Fort Irwin, this land is so revealing and very predictable, but she refused to make more than the general speculations. It notes that Fort Irwin will protect the geoglyphs.
