Coso Wilderness: Remnants of Ancient Peoples

Quick note: This is part 3 of a series of posts on my trip to the Coso Wilderness. If you are seeing this for the first time, it’d be worthwhile to scroll down and read Coso Wilderness: Mustangs and Coso Wilderness: Watering Hole first. Thanks for stopping by!

I came here looking for specific things. I found them all with the exception of the tool-making sites strewn with obsidian. I’m guessing they’re higher on the ridges overlooking the valley. On a future visit, I’ll seek them out. It’s particularly interesting because the obsidian tools from this region have been discovered as far west as the Channel Islands.

But I did find petroglyphs and mortars!
