  • Goat Camp Ruins - An active dig in Payson - Archaeologist J. Scott Wood and volunteers from the Rim Country Chapter of the Arizona Archaeological Society have been excavating a portion of this six acre site for the past several years.  Scott will talk about his finds in this fascinating place. 

  • 13 Turtles Pictograph at Flowing Springs - There are six white pictograph panels on the vertical walls and ceiling of the grotto, in a shallow rock shelter overlooking the East Verde River. The 13 turtles painting is the most striking of the pictographs.

  • Buckhead Mesa Petroglyphs Above the Tonto Bridge State Park - On a high ridge with a view of the western sky, there are numerous petroglyphs on scattered boulders within this protected site. One location has a curious placement of concentric circles, likely to be a solar calendar.
