  • coloradoriver21-130  A nearby site  This shelter / crevice is approximately 12' across, by 2' high, by 6' deep.  Because of the amount of potsherds located in front of this site, you get the feeling that this site may have been a storage area for containers of food and/or water.

  • coloradoriver21photo-001b  The last two photos below are the property of Mike and are being used without his permission.  I am hoping that either Mike or someone who knows Mike will see this page and put me in contact with him.  I would like to be able to find him, and with his permission, put his original photos of the discovery and his personal story on this web page.  Because I don't have permission to use the photos, I have blanked out Mike's face in the first photo.  He is sitting in the entrance to the cave where the pot was discovered.  From what I understand, this is the pot that was eventually turned over to the NPS.  The bottom photo was the pot in-situ.
