This large cave is about 80′ x 80′, head-height, and was used by indians for thousands of years. We are excavating it in an archaeology project with University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and the Arizona State University. Note: This post originally appeared November 22, 2008.
When the original settlers came, they took their teams and wagons up the valley bottoms. The wagon wheels nicked the turf, and this started gullies which can develop violently during fast runnoff. Left untreated, these will eat whole valleys.
