Medicine Wheel from Helium Balloon

Travel back in time?! Let the BLM take you 2,000 years away to view ancient Medicine Wheels.


Created by Native Americans, these structures are still somewhat of a mystery. Were Medicine Wheels a place to play, dance, and tell stories? A tool for healing? A site for councils to convene and make decisions? All of the above?


Let your creativity and fascination run free with these photos from an ancient Medicine Wheel site – which include ground pictures as well as aerial shots taken by a camera launched with the BLM’s hot air balloon.


Then learn more about Medicine Wheels with a terrific article inside the BLM’s magazine, Northwest Passage. It’s free online:
