    1. There's something about an arrowhead. In fact, my grandmother would find arrowheads in the plowed fields of northeast Wisconsin! Tell the hubby not to give up!

  5. Another one! Do you often find arrowheads out walking? or are they rare and this is a real treat to find two in such a short period of time? They're really amazing - l'd love to learn more about them.

    1. We usually find a few on our hikes, but it depends on the amount of vegetation covering the ground. There was quite a bit of rain in Colorado in the late summer so they have been a little harder to spot. During the peak of the drought-about a year ago-we found quite a few arrowheads.
      We wander along the rim of the mesas with the dogs and from time to time come across areas of stone chips. These are the places where prehistoric people made stone tools and arrowheads. It's near these areas that there will sometimes be a nice arrowhead or two.
