As mentioned in an earlier post, heard from an old-timer another Carrizo Canyon cave existed farther upstream from the cave Bob just posted on. Thought I'd drive out today hoping it wouldn't rain too much (it didn't). The road was rough as usual but no standing water.

Here's a view up Carrizo Canyon about a half mile from the end of the road.

Walked upstream till I was near BM Windy, and there it was. Had a very similar feel to the shaman cave farther north. Looks like a bird's nest is in one corner.

The shaman cave downstream.

The upstream cave had only a few obvious pictographs which looked retouched. Any others were barely visible. Tried to DStretch any thing visible.

Bob, this looks like the same pictograph you just posted.

I could find one petroglyph which looked like concentric circles or a happy face smile Inverted the image to enhance it.

There were a number of cupules and morteros like the site downstream.

Headed up the canyon and about 100ft from the cave almost stepped on these. A native trash heap?

Headed up an east side canyon below Windy and hiked up about half way to the tracks. On the way down came across this presumed camp site with so may sherds lying on the ground I had to be careful where I stepped.

Found this on the rocks a couple feet away.

This guy hitched a ride home. Hope he's the only one!

Only a light drizzle most of the time with the temp 48 degrees. Enjoy your weekend. Tom

Gorgeous photos Tom and it looks like a great trip. I've come home with ticks that I find 2 days later, eeeeeek! I've found that storing your camp clothing in the freezer overnight DOES kill them. smile

Two days later. Yikes. Were they attached? I seem to always feel them crawling up my neck on the way home or shortly thereafter. Freezer treatment sounds interesting. Wonder if the freezing sprays for wart removal would get attached ones off. Tom
