This is the oh, so lovely place I chose to eat "out" for my recent birthday celebration. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and the company was good.
After lunch, we went exploring and ended up at an Indian cave nearby, where several years ago archaeological excavations unearthed ancient artifacts, including one skeletal remains of a young woman. These artifacts are on display at a state university museum - a place on my want-to-visit list.
Even though I had visited this cave before, I had never been inside it, and was amazed to find it so large and spacious. And, the colors in the rock walls and ceiling all around and above are so, so beautiful. Those long-ago inhabitants must have felt they had a bonanza here. If only these walls could talk...
The cave is on private property, and the owners seem to be using it for storage. I would like to Photoshop those things right out of the picture!
My wanderers of The Four Strong Winds are ready to move on to a new place and to a new page. I almost threw this page into the scrap box, since my original intention was to dress these people in colorful trade blankets. (Those will come along directly.) But, these good people really wanted to stay in their little book and go on with their story. I agreed, so now they are dressed in furs and hides just as the bluff dwellers might have been who once made this cave their home.
