Filled mines

The filled in mines We have see are not filled completely. After time the fill settles some. There will be a space between the fill and the the mined rock after some time.

I am wondering about the logistics of the search. I know the mountain rain fall has changed thru the last 30 years due to tne heat island effect Phoenix metro has brought on.

That reminded me of a group of people we were showing around the diggings. Three people stepped by or over a small rattler that was coiled
in the trail . I flipped it into the brush and then took the lead. There were a lot of snakes out in fall and spring.

I spent most the day researching pottery, It seems that trying to date
pottery within a time frame of 200 yrs is almost impossible unless it was used for food stuffs. Then its expensive and usually done at taxpayers expense or in university labs.

In the late 70's we were asked to stay out of the Sup's during the weeks before and after Easter holidays. This request came from the San Carlos Apache's who told my Mentor in the 50-60's.The reason, I was told was ,that time was sacred. Easter was spent with my family .
