Another Used Rock

Out walking more fence line in the area around the Painted Pony Resort and came across this nice little obsidian stemmed serrated projectile point.  Its shape and color jumped out from the surrounding water worn pebbles covered in desert varnish and was spotted from about 10 feet away.  Finding used rocks is a common occurrence around here but it would be nice to occasionally find a new rock.

  1. I like finding the old rock, it is so much fun!

  2. your quite right, old used rocks are more interesting.

  3. I think "new rock" is an oxymoron like Jumbo Shrimp and Military Intelligence.
    Ha !

  4. Perhaps you are right. New rock would involve volcano's and lava which would not be very fun, scenic perhaps, but definitely not fun.

  5. You made me smile! Great find. Lucky you

  6. Thank you, I'm glad you found the idea amusing. I never know if folks like a posting unless they comment so I post on a variety of different topics relating to the Painted Pony Resort and the surrounding area.

    The prehistory of the area is extensive and outside chores provides an opportunity to find evidence of past inhabitants.
