Sounds interesting. Don't think I can make it but if you do please give us a report. I read that some ollas in the area were up to 30 inches in diameter! For storage of acorns to be cached in caves or sheltered areas.

Here's acouple of interesting pics.

I posted this previously. This olla is on display in the Visitors discovery center. Found in 1970.



This one was found about a mile from our old house in E. Encinitas by a local resident many years ago.



San Diego State University did a "Dig" close by our old house on a hill near a creek back in 1974 and found "thousands" of artifacts.
