There is another event that I wanted to broadcast in case anyone is interested in going with me.. :)


Native American Cave Paintings Tour
Saturday, November 2, 9:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.
Lake Camanche, south shore
Native American Cave Paintings Tour
When: Saturday, November 2, 2013 9:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.
Where: Meet at the Camanche South Shore Staging Area (Directions below)
ADVANCED REGISTRATION REQUIRED as space is limited. Contact Steve Diers at sdiers@ebmud.com . Please provide your daytime phone number. Should the event be cancelled due to an emergency and we have to contact you. There is no charge for this event.
Activities: You'll take the "ankle express" (walk) to the Canal Cave site, stopping periodically to talk about Native American plant uses, and view the local fauna. Special guest Fred Velazquez will be sharing information on Native Americans and performing a stone tool making demonstration. The location of the canal caves is rich in Natural History; this area was used both by Native Americans and subsequently the gold mining community. Come experience these beautiful pictographs, learn their origin, and the history of the area. Because this site is behind locked gates and is not accessible to the public w/o a Ranger you will all arrive together and leave together
Bring:Lunch, long pants (for stickers & insects), comfortable hiking shoes, backpack, canteen, sun screen, insect repellent, binoculars and a camera.
Minors:Children who are age 7 or older welcome...(younger children may become bored). Those under 18 must have written permission from a parent or guardian, and an adult must accompany those under 16.
Difficulty:Round trip is 2-3 miles. Most of the route is moderate grade but without shade. You may encounter poison oak. Please take the appropriate precautions. The cave is a shelf cave which is about 50’ wide, 15’ deep & 10’ high. There is ½ mile near the beginning that is a gradual climb. Near the middle of the hike we will walk across uneven ground and negotiate through 50’ of cobble. The last ¼ mile is steep descent so on the way back it is a challenge.
