Today we will be talking about the red headed giants of the Lovelock Caves in the state of Nevada. For more than a century, a story has persisted about the skeletons of red-headed giants being found in the Lovelock Cave in northern Nevada. Famed Nevadan Piute Sarah Winnemucca first wrote an acclaimed book back in the late 1800’s. In this book she writes that the Paiutes waged a three-year war against a tribe of red-headed cannibals. The Piute Native Americans are said to have trapped, then killing, the last of these red-haired giants inside lovelock cave.

To help us understand the legend of these caves more, we will be talking with the YouTuber Burning Sands Exploration. She is a Nevada local and knows a lot about these caves.

Our guest Burning Sands Exploration has a wonderful YouTube channel that mostly explores the Northern Nevada area. She explores everything from ghost towns, museums, abandoned places, and more. She has visited the Lovelock caves numerous times. And doesn’t live too far from them. She actual has a wonderful video up where she explores the Lovelock Caves.
