Just turning around at the marker, the Indian camp is visible ( just behind that man made tower ). The hill on the R is the one we have a picture of
that Nach & Ace were at the top of.
Just up stream from the camp area the Devils river is as wide as a lake, obviously quite shallow. If it was almost like this in ancient times, it must have been good for hunting ( water fowl, crawfish, clams etc )
Looking west over the dig site, "new" camp is just out of the pic on the L
in high traffic areas the bull dust was really billowing...imagine what the air intake filter must look like after 9 hours of this treatment
Its a ranch >> & & ( Adrian )
The new bridge over the river is properly named as it's on the Baker's ranch
Aside from the ancient residents of this area, there is more interesting recent history.
Google for complete coverage of Camp Hudson..The Baker family ownership dates back to the 18 hundreds..one member visited the dig ...Google Baker.
LOTS of info on the Devils River...Google..
A few data bits that may be of interest without Googling..
Tx tourism reports hundreds of canoers paddle from the start to the Rio Grand.
That explains the proper campground where we overnight... somebody had a spot for tourists to stay. Says so many boaters now do the voyage that the Parks & WL has stepped in to provide better in & out access.
Part of the tourist sales pitch notes the " beautiful " blue color of the river...it's silt ! By the time it enters the Rio Grand it has filtered to crystal clear.
