Field Trip to Rock Art Ranch, in the Holbrook area. Members only.
The owner of the Ranch, Mr. Brnatley Baird will take us on a tour of his museum which has a collection of pioneer, cowboy, and Anasazi artifacts including pots found in the area. Beautiful, large pieces of petrified wood border the museum and grounds. Native Americans once built and lived in an old rock house and corral located on the Ranch. There is also a Hogan ("remudded up" by Navajos whenever needed) and sweathouse which were built later by the Navajos. This is where the U.S. Calvalry camped just before the last battle with the Apaches at Apache Butte. If lucky, we might see Mr. Baird's buffalso herd. Bring your own picnic lunch which we will enjoy before we leave to visit the canyon, walking down by way of a 50-70 foot steel staircase with handrails, to the petroglyphs and Chevelon Creek. Archaeologists claim there are over 3,000 petroglyphs on the canyon walls. Call for fees involved. Meet at the SHC at 7:30 am.
