  • Meadowcroft Rock Shelter

    I visited this location back in June. I never got to posting the pics, or story. Here are a few I took, and the link adds a lot more.

      Do you know how tempting it was to just jump in that creek and look for points? Very. It was close to 90, and the speaker was boring. I was tempted.

      I’ve been in that situation on occasion.. lol. I can tell you a secret that won’t work in water.. But as for surface hunting, it’s the bomb !

      It's only about an hour from my grandmothers. I have never gone on a field hunt, but I have walked the creek in front of her house a few times. Zilch.

    Great photos. I have never been there but have followed Adovasio's work there since he was a lone voice in the pre-Clovis wilderness. No more!

        It really is. It is the perfect spot for Native American habitation. It was close to 90 when I was there, but in the shelter, near Cross creek...very relaxing and comfy.

          I wouldn't doubt it. Cross creek has some fish, and the Monongahela isn't too far away.

        Thanks for posting the pictures! On my bucket list. I do have Adovasio's book about the rock shelter and have read it numerous times.
