Death Valley Indian Camp
by Danny Ray Thomas

This pristine untouched campsite is well hidden in the great expanse of Death Valley.

It is one of over a handful I have investigated over the years but is by far the most well preserved.

The site is approximately 50 meters long by 9 meters wide.

To the untrained eye it looks like a bunch of loose rocks and rusty old cans.

There are a number of Thin Slab Metates some appearing to have been used on two sides.

Also noticed an oval cobble being used as a Mano.

The site seems to be divided into 6 distinct sections.

The north end of the site is the only place littered with tin cans

which are from the late 1800's to early 1900's.

The center of the site has the most distinct fire pit.

The south end of the site appears to be a hunting blind.

The site is approximately 400 meters from a good spring.

As of yet, the site does not appear to have been excavated by an archaeologist.
