    This Swainson's is sitting atop this yucca with odd posture, at first I have no idea why.

    Farther on to the day's destination, a pyramidal shaped mountain in the Peloncillos, off the highway to Animas.

    I attached the image below, from a different cave, only because the
    parallel connected lines are somewhat similar to the previous painting.

    I was heading down the slope when I came across this core. A core is what is left when the arrowhead maker has chipped off peices for his weaponry. They throw it down the slope of the mountain, so I head straight up to where the warrior must have been working away at replenishing his arsenal.

    Here is an exceedingly crude arrowhead. Maybe his young son sat next to him learning the art.

    Another core

    Bits and peices. The bone seems to have been fire hardened, it was not flaky or deteriorating, probably was an awl for sewing leather.

    And a decent arrowhead. No serrations along the edges, but it sure would do the job.

    Really nice. I've found a few arrowheads, and a few spots where they were being made. That stuff is still out there, if you know what to look for.

    Great report, thanks!
