I've been suffering with the flu for the last ~10 days but figured I could handle the flats of Perry Mesa once again. I planned to look around the good area I visited two weeks ago but from a different angle and with a little more scrutiny. Additionally I particularly wanted to look at some unusual grinding features and see if I could take some better pictures at the petroglyph site - I had some fresh advice from a photography forum.

In the end I have no new insights on "square-edged bedrock metates" or "wok shaped" mortars. However I did find an area with a heck of a lot of standard bedrock metates. That's always fun. Not particularly close to any large habitation sites that I know of but people obviously spent a lot of time there.

My attempts to get better petroglyph pictures had only marginal success. A polarizer on my camera/phone shows some promise but 1) the fact that the phone automatically adjusts exposure makes the normal "darken sky" approach to polarization adjustment problematic, and 2) I can't really see the display in the bright sun anyway!

Still it was nice to be out walking around and a worthwhile day.
