I Finally got out to a local hill to photo some crude stone tools I have seen over the years at a local hiking spot. The area is hard to get to ( bush wacking). I have never seen any other foot prints out here other than my own and the wild life. There is a bob cat that I have been trying to photo. I hope I don't get flamed because the area is out side ABDSP by a few dozen miles. Anyway, there are crude stone tools and chipping all over the hill side at a spot over looking the mountians, streams and a primary native American trail. The site is on an other old native trail I had to re-cut through the estimated 80-100 years old brush. Morteros are nearby. Basically I grouped them up to photo and then put back in their resting places :-)
Rough Points are about 4" long. The middle ones look more recent. The end ones look very weathered .The left one has a caliche/ travertine coating. Age? Old!

These were abundant. All where 1.5" to 2" in width and about 3" long. Stone clubs? Again gathered for a group shot and put back.

The local flowers think it's spring time and are coming out early.



Cheers

That's the kind of rock that most would not even glance at. The 2 on the right below your hiking pole might catch my attention, but nothing else would! So, there's a resident bobcat in the area too? smile Doesn't matter if the area is outside the ABDSP at all, this forum is all-inclusive.

Yes I agree. I actually like posts about the San Diego back country in general wink

Ziphius: Yes these are very crude stone tools that most hikers would not even notice. But I did! Yes there is a beautiful bob cat that I have seen once in the area but escaped my view before I could photo. I see his/her tracks frequently. I am going to share some more odd ball crude stone tool picture when I visit the area again. I did see two fine point projectile points nearby but most are large crude stone tool jobs.
Surf: Thanks for the kind words.
