Got out for a few hours and poked around the Jacumba area a bit last weekend. The Shell/Subway was buussyy...lots of folks getting subs and using the facilities. It was kinda hot, maybe high 90's or more. Mountain bikers were there as usual heading out to the Carrizo Tracks. Anyway, just parked and got out and wandered around the boulders for a few hours.

Probably the closest I will find to a Kumeyaay shoe


Wandering around boulders close to private property with no fences or signs can be hit or miss...this time it was a miss when a friendly dog found me and after a couple ear scratchies and some water we were BF's


Found a boulder with some faint rock art


Ran into BP on ATV's all decked out in Camelbak gear, nice enough but wow, what a job...!

On the way way home I stopped off at the Buckman Springs site and poked around there also. Here is a photo I took of Amos Buckman's house (in ruins) and another from back when the whole resort area was alive and well




Also found what I think were the remains of a mine operation, or at least that is what old topos show


Anyway, that's it..no mylars this trip..

Cool. Daren, have you systematically looked up the pictograph sites you find to see if any are 'new' in terms of documentation? You sure have a knack for finding 'em.

I am not sure anything I do is systematic...I think there is a lot of rock art out there, native americans lived pretty much everywhere here for a long time. I just get out and go explore....besides, the dog is who really found it...wink

Oh, and yes, I have found many sites not recorded before and have also (with dstretch) found art at existing sites that were not recorded.

Here is a photo of the panel with no dstretch


And with, I was really surprised when I got home and saw so much pigment. I wonder what was in the center before it fell off

I like the past and present shot of the Buckman house.
If you look at the vegetation on the small ridge in the foreground it almost looks identical smile
