WOW, I never would have guessed it was a drum! We always kind of leaned towards it being some kind of cable guide for the railroad or telephone/Edison. Does anyone know how long it's been there? We've been visiting it for at least 7 years.

By the way, Chahwalla asked me for the location of the “drum”. I have no problem sending the info. However, (and please forgive my paranoia) being relatively new to this board, I just want to make sure no one here has any objections for me doing so. I had a really bad experience a few years back with a group of “students” up by Owl Canyon. I made the mistake of pointing out a very rare petroglyph to one of their professors. To make a long story short, the glyph is gone, and I heard through the grapevine it now adorns a nice spot in a basement on the UCSB campus. And before anyone asks me – no I have no proof that the school took it. Just rumblings from some locals and a few of the BLM guys. To say the least, I feel kinda stupid for what I did. Just don’t want to do it twice.
