It looks like every other place in these canyons.
But when you get close it is very special indeed.
Maybe a thousand years of sand falling from the
walls of the cave have formed a fine sand in the blind.
when I dug down I found a 1940's style biscuit can
perfectly preserved. Most likely used to keep water
for the person in the blind.
I called it a hunting blind as it is perched in
such a way as to see animals drinking in the stream that
runs from the cave top through the cave in into the
stream in the center of the canyon. I found a white
abisinion arrow head at the spot the blind faces.
I have more pictures inside the cave. Where the
water falls through the narrow crack in the top some
80 feet up it forms a pool on the cave floor.
There were two wooden pegs in the wall of the cave
that held dry fire wood up from the pool below.
a perfectly round dome of cretaceous clay with
shells inside protrudes from the center of the
pond. The pond then overflows causing the
stream that you see below the blind.
1100 years ago the Anastazi hunter could enter
the blind at night. Keep warm with the dry wood.
Enter the blind before sunrise and wait for
the animals to come to the stream just outside
the blind. There from the blind above the
Anastazi could pick the prize and let fly an arrow.
