With guests in residence inside cleaning is not an issue and there is time to tend to other work around the resort. The runway was showing signs of weeds and had received herbicide about a month ago but dead plants and newly sprouted weeds needed removal, so a day was spent removing a variety of weeds that were trying to take over the 2 runways on the property. Tumbleweeds are the most aggressive and pervasive but quickly yield to an herbicide mix (4% glyphosate with 0.2% 2,4D). Even with dead weeds runway weeding is all hand work done with a scrapping motion of the shovel since machines tear up the runway surface. Operations started early and with shovel in hand weeding started at the south end of the runway and moved north. Some clouds kept the temperatures moderate but since weeding is a fairly monotonous activity requiring very little mental activity engaging in other mental activities helps with the task. I used the opportunity to look for evidence of habitation along the runway. The area had not been walked in awhile and rains frequently uncover new evidence of the previous inhabitants. Several partial metates were found and a single projectile point, but the most interesting piece found was a hand adze. Not ground like other early axe heads frequently found but chipped and shaped into a usable tool that fits nicely in the hand. Created out of a fine grained greenish gray sedimentary rock the tool is just another gentle reminder that people have been digging plants around here for several thousand years and a day spent cleaning the runway is not a big deal.
