Noticed a section of the Gila edge I hadn't walked and thought it would be worth a look. Near the start, walking a barren mudflat (not sure why these even exist), I noticed lots of pottery pieces. I've found very little pottery in many previous trips to the Gila River edge but this apparently was a large Patayan habitation site. The pottery concentration continued for a couple hundred yards extending into the mouth of a side canyon.

I hoped to find some petroglyphs along the cliff edge and succeeded on the first try. There is lots of edge to check there but I decided to save the rest for another trip.

On the way back stopped at the Oatman grave site. And at the car met a couple ladies who were heading out to find petroglyphs - not common to have a glyph conversation with strangers in the field!
