    Smile 1881 Arizona Map

    Here's another cool old Arizona map. This one's dated 1881. It's got plenty of detail. Here's a small piece of it:

    Danm Joe, you put together a great site. I know where I'll be, when I'm not in the bars.

    Holy crap, those are about the neatest things I've seen in some time! I can almost see my house in Galena, just past the open pit and what a thrill to revisit the Gila Cliff Dwellings whenever I want:

    A friend of mine says he spent the night in that little room to the left (when facing out of the cave). He claims that a noise woke him up and that by moonlight he could see the face and hands of some Indian who had hoisted himself up on the other side of the wall. He heard the Indian drop to the ground and footsteps fade into the night.

    It amazes me those old dried up peyote buttons still work!

    Thanks, Sunrise.

    My wife and I were up in Mesa Verde this past fall - what a great spot! Anyway, the Ranger who led one of the tours in the caves confided a story to us. He claims that he, and other Rangers, were in a remote cave location doing some restoration work. They camped there, and each of them, at sometime during their work or sleep or dreams, had some sort of very unusual experience related to the original inhabitants.

    And I don't think he was just making it up. You could tell by his tone and mannerisms he was pretty serious about it.

    Cool stuff. I'd like to camp out in one of those caves.
