Been suffering cabin fever. Bad. Got out over the weekend for a camping trip. Took a few short walks to see stuff. Sun was even shining! It was nice...

Suffering cabin fever here last week also. Record snow for February. It's kinda fun walking on 3-4 feet of hard snow though.

More Jeeping and camping and walking and looking at stuff again last weekend. Backpacked for three nights. Walked almost 50 miles.

This was over 20 miles from where the Jeep was parked.

Not sure how many more years I'm going to hold up to 50 miles off trail in these rugged canyons. But I sure do love it!

For sure related. Pottery was a big trade item. Certain styles came from certain areas and the unique look of each had as much to do with the clay and firing materials available in the locale as anything. But, definitely, black on white, as that style is called, is black on white - same time period, same general location of origin.

Used to be, not even all that long ago, potsherds like that and bigger were everywhere in this area. Any site you found, would have them everywhere. But people pick them up and take them home and it has got to where you have to try pretty hard to find a site where it's still there. Most sites that can be reached fairly easily have absolutely zero left.

With all the relics shown you must be way off the beaten path ,here in Az. they have carried most everything away in any easily accessible site . very nice pics of things I'll probably never witness in person thanks for taking us along . I have visited Utah and gone to most all the monuments but never in that deep.

Paul, yeah pretty far off the beaten track. The main canyon has a backpacking trail through it that sees some use. But the un-named side canyons are a total bushwack. No trails, hard as heck to get up into some of them because the brush is so tall and thick.

Don't see much 10 foot tall sagebrush anymore either! My friend Randy is 6' 5".

I see that same black / white pattern on shards down this way fairly regularly.

Question; In one of your photos, it appears to be a cubby shelter on the cliff face that's plugged with a large stone.
Possible tomb ???

Koko, that's a granary. Foodstuff storage. In the day, that door stone was mouse tight. Very uncommon to find a door stone still in place these days. Very uncommon. That was a long way up a rough side canyon with no trail.

We have found bones and burials before though. My limited understanding, people lived here for many thousands of years, with these structures being the most recent, only about 7-800 years old most of them. Burials varied a great deal over time and likely according to status. But the most common, was just being tossed in the midden. Next most common, was being buried in a cyst under the floor of the dwelling - which we have found a few of those. I found one last month, in fact. Did not of course dig it up or try to see what was buried, but it was an obvious burial cyst.

And, kind of an interesting side note to that, my buddy who is very interested in this stuff but hasn't done very much of it yet, walked right by it, almost stepped on it, without even recognizing it as man made. Let alone a cyst and very possibly a burial (cysts were often used for grain and household storage as well - but the location and size of this one, I'm betting burial).

Another common burial was what we call crevice, just dump in a big crack in the rock.

Dave, I am so jealous! I love that stuff. I have stumbled on a very few, but since my primary focus is hunting, I have never took the time to do a good explore. What you are doing is what's required, clear the boards and concentrate on ruins. But, you obviously have sources.

Burial in crevasses. How did you determine it wasn't just an accident? Take your borescope, drill a hole in that sealed granary. Maybe it's plumb full? Okay, next time.

Thanks for showing us this stuff. You really need to do a large format book. I know, there is a serious downside to publishing these things.

This is awesome stuff! Thank you!

Good hunting. El Bee
