This are is interspersed with open parks and timbered gullies and a number of Sheep traps are evident throughout. Rock and even log pilings are evidenced throughout the area. Les is pointing out one of the traps itself upslope from where we are. He and his wife, Cathy were up here the other day and found an actual sheep carcass with horns from a Ram that didn't make it this spring from some unknown reason. A real find. Cathy also found a broken arrowhead and flint chips. Notice all the dead Pines in the background. Beetle kill from the past year and a part of the epidemic sweeping the Rocky Mountains from Alaska to Mexico associated with global warming.
