A Fool for the City

The first hints of fall were felt in the glorious Southland as temperature plummeted into the upper 80s during the day and around 60 at night. Dry conditions have kept the river low so DW and myself decided to don our wetsuits for one last paleo-adventure. We had a few spots in mind; and maybe some exploration; but alas…Artifact City beckoned and the 70s tune of Foghat ringed aloud. We geared up and eased into the tannin treasure trove and I fanned out a broken projectile point in the first hour, then a nice 2-1/2” angy. Work in the city was a little more taxing than before as more sand removal was required to expose the gravel beds. I envisioned megaspear, choice anygy’s, et al littered in the City. Luckily DW honed in on a beautiful translucent spear tip and I followed with a large I. Desori. We both picked up some more shark teeth and a few broken artifacts until the chill set in; a chill which only Moe’s burritos avec hot sauce and diced hot peppers could break! PS – Be aware of flow eddies which can attract snakes of a wide variety; the river deuce serpent is an especially ferocious critter!
