Chumash Grinding Stone


I found this Indian grinding stone (mortar or metate) yesterday afternoon while on a hike in the Santa Barbara backcountry.

    Great site, I have been checking it for a while now. What a cool find
    So does that mean you left the mortar? And was that sign at the site also?
    if you could post this that would be great, I know you love the coast also,
    Thanks

    Hey, Anonymous, why are you telling Jack to tell me stuff? Why can’t you tell me yourself? And why can’t I be asked nicely? Why must I be commanded? And so what if I have pictures up? Van Gogh paintings have been stolen too, should we remove all Impressionist imagery from the internet? My pictures don’t have any directions to rock art sites, so I don’t see why I should take them down.
