    1. Every arrowhead is a gift. Makes me wonder about the people that used these things so long ago. They were talented, tough, and knew how to survive. Makes me connect with those people when I hold something like this in my hand. xx

  5. Ok, so my first guess was right an arrowhead....so that's from when Indians lived there? How many years ago was that?
    It can be quite moving when you are in the presence of really old and ancient objects. I felt that way when l saw my first Aboriginal rock art.....to think back to when it was made, what the people were doing, how they lived.....just awesome. Great moment Julie.

    1. Chrisy,
      The local prehistoric Indians were called the Anasazi, they are the ancestors of the modern Pueblo Indians here in the southwest USA. The ruins and artifacts are about 800 years old.
      I've been hiking this area for almost 30 years and am still amazed every time I find something like this. It really does feel like a gift....a little piece of the past and part of the person that used it.
