Iv'e made countless trips to Blair Valley sence I was a kid. It's a neat place to explore and is a perfect place to learn about the Kumeyaay. My dad is seen here in some of the photos.

I feel like this is the icon of Blair Valley

This is why areas in Anza Borrego are culturally preserved. Big NO NO

Not the best photo. You can barley see a hiking stick sliding through the grinding stone. In pre-contact history iv'e heard in some cases if a well respected person was to die that their grinding stone would be destroyed. In this case I wonder if it's natural, or even done purposely to collect water or something.





Pretty deep. Didn't take a measurement.

Not sure what this is. It reminded me of old crumpled leather.







Natural Yoni anyone? smile

Indian pint rock house











This is in a cave. I'm not sure if it could be a picto or not? can anybody do a DStretch on it for me please. I'm having trouble with my cpu.

I randomly took this photo not realizing somebody's print on the wall until I reviewed my photos at home.

So I relocated the cave and got a better shot. Anybody know a Dennis Arnold?

Rock tank in cave.











Crazy you can see these things all the way from Blair Valley. A good video to check out is "Greed Energy".

My favorite

On the way home through Ramona from one of the trips. It's funny when you zoom in and see the reactions from other people.

Neat report. Been in that part of the park many times myself. You are correct, during a period in history, when a member of the tribe passed, his or her posessions were broken and scattered. You will see the broken decorative pottery bits and broken arrow heads around the burial mound sites. Great pics!

You can see the wind turbines from just about everywhere. At Rattlesnake Spring this last July 4th we could see the ones recently built in Mexico also, at night we could just see red blinking lights all to the south. I am sure the views up on higher ridges like Rabbit see it all.

Looks like you had a nice hike. Happy to see I'm not the only one taking pics of Township and Range markers!

Awwesome pics! Thanks for posting smile. Those wild turkeys walk through my yard all the time, as I live right by where your pic was taken! Fyi, directlty west of where your Turkey pic was taken there is tons of morteros, pottery sherds, etc. I found a peace pipe a long time ago and is now at the ramona museum wink
