Trading Trail Part 2 – is a continuation of the same trail as in “Part 1”.
From what I have been told there are 4 more trails similar to this one. Someday if I get very lucky, I may stumble across one or two of them, but so far no luck with that.
This trail was used for over a thousand years for trade and travel. In many places the trail is so worn into the desert pavement that it is visible for hundreds of yards in the distance, and in other places it has been destroyed by erosion.
Along the trail we located petroglyphs, trail markers, and possible habitat areas. Most of these were within 50’, if not right next to the trail. Also, we would periodically see small rocks with pecked or etched marks on them. It's possible that they were markers of a sort.
At regular intervals next to the trail we found pottery sherds and grinding stones that were possibly for ceremonial purposes.
