We went out to snoop around for "ancient signs" on State Trust flat desert north of Newman Peak. Cow country with a web of shallow washes: occupied by the Hohokam 600+ years ago and they left plenty of broken pottery strewn about.

Slightly disappointed to find only plain pottery...I think the nice painted stuff I've seen both north and south of here was a little earlier, and that plain pottery dominated toward the end of the Hohokam heyday...but I may be completely wrong.

We finished early and headed over to a nearby petroglyph site at the northern tip of the Picacho mountains. This was one of the first petroglyph places I visited (8 yrs ago) and thought Catherine would like it and maybe I'd see some new glyphs. We ended walking a "casual perimeter" and didn't see anything but the most obvious ones - I'd worked much harder on my previous trip.

Still early in the day we considered driving out east on Start/Star Rd to Route 79. At a gate I talked to a guy in a heavy-duty truck coming the other way and his advice was "don't do it". So we didn't and returned to the west (Randall Schullhauser's 2006 description of the drive out to the glyph site is still accurate).

When we got home I noticed some weird patterns on my car's body and windows. Those lonely cows apparently like to lick Subarus.
