Arrowhead Expedition

Today, after opening presents, we went out on a arrowhead hunting expedition. Sound like fun? Since the lake levels are so low due to drought, shoreline is exposed now that hasn't been seen since the lake was first flooded.

In the picture above you can see what the terrain looked like. Lots of stumps from trees that were drowned when the basin was flooded in the middle of the last century.

In the picture below, you can see part of our expedition party: my father, brother and two of my brother's sons.



And in this final picture you can see the closest thing to an arrowhead that I could find. It's got a similar shaped point but otherwise fails to look much like an arrowhead. Oh, well. I don't think I'd have the patience to be an archeologist.

Too bad you didn't find a whole pile of them, Dave. I heard once about a guy who had a shoebox full and sold them for $7k. Merry Christmas!

Sometimes it's nice to have any excuse to get out and go for a walk :) Hope you had a great day.
