THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
I was outside Marble Falls last weekend camping & fishing on lake LBJ.
There is a ranch where we have gone for years, the old gentleman that owns
it stopped by and we talked. I asked about any prehistoric sites around on
the property and he proceeded to tell me of a huge site that was now
underwater on the main Colorado river that was nearby. I hiked around and
found this huge boulder that would have been very close to the camp site
and main river channel. You can clearly see the impression where grinding
took place and was worn down several inches. This would be an excellent
place for any underwater explorations that one might do. I thought it
was pretty neat!
That IS a beautiful area AND just a few feet from the granite outcrops that produced all the best Manos downstream.
The matate users at your picture location would have had a ringside seat of the Marble Falls power races
very cool! thanks for info and pics. Did the river move some and that's why the camp site is underwater?
It like hundreds of sites along the highland lakes chain are now underwater since LCRA created dam's to keep Austin from flooding.
