It's always best to keep historic/archeological sites. at least, a semi-secret. That's not to be exclusive or secretive, but to help to assure that those sites will remain intact. Once a site is changed by collecting, moving, removal, walking on, etc, that site is runined FOREVER!!! A site may have been there thousands of years, but will be distroyed forever in ajust a few minutes by the thoughtless collector or vandal. Plus, as stated over the last few months on this site, your own research & exploration is much more rewarding than being led to a place: find it yourself. The site in question would be easily found if you've spent anytime at all exploring the backcountry. And, by exploring, I don't mean just by motorized vehical: get out & hike and climb those mountains!!! See what's back there!! You'll be surprized. Do library and field research. Areas to explore will become crystal clear! Please do not damage, collect, remove, or in any way change or modify sites. Let them remain for others to discover! Thanks, DD
