One of the perks of the rear seat passenger in a hunters' vehicle is a very close view of the noisy end of an AR15
This cave has a rare hole in the roof, great smoke exit

Cliff's ideally positioned shooting gallery, rifles sighted in for 1 mile.
It's springtime in the desert too. This nail bush looks deceptively beautiful.
Another night, we assume the ancients lived like this every night ( except rain days )
Time for show & tell of the days' finds. pic quality is terrible due campfire lighting....no "insitus", all were surface finds.
This is Daryls' G11 Marcos
Peggy went small & large...drill flint has that waxy look and feel
Greg won the quantity award. That square item on the R is made of gritty sandstone and has a very definite worn area in the middle as a whetstone
Of all the quatdrillion stones out there Boyd spotted this inscribed one.
Boyd also got the heavyweight This blade preform was a good one
Coolest "surprise" went to Chuck...
He spotted an "unusual" looking rock, on closer inspection, the 3 blades on the L was right next to it...the pieces on the R was UNDER the rock. a TRUE Cache.
Boyds' combined finds
Sorry, cant remember whos these were
Steve, His wife and Sister made a peach cobbler for the crew...just like the pioneers did .....cooked in a cast iron pot with embers
And this is the embers without flash
See you next year folks
