Primitive Cave Drawings, Here?
There is a nature park I learned about last year while looking for geocaching sites on the web. It happened to be amazingly close to my home, so I knew I had to go there. Another nature park is always welcome for an everyday adventurer. The only problem was that when I got to the approximate location I could not find the park at all!
I saw what looked like a path going down under the road, but this was from a very busy highway with no parking for a very long ways. So there was no way to be sure the place was even there. I went back home and searched the web for a way in, but found nothing whatsoever.
Finally, about a week ago I found some better directions on the web. I drove to where I hoped to find this place the very same day. It turned out to be on the other side of the highway all along! And here it is, a place called Valley Woods Trail. It's a trail that goes along a quiet river, but surrounded by the hustle and bustle of urban surroundings in Southfield, Michigan.
I soon went around a bend and discovered that this trail went directly under the highway from where I had been searching. This highway is called Telegraph Road for any of you who might be curious. A very well known road in these parts. And that path I previously thought was the entranceway into the park was indeed a way down there! But let's get on to what it was that I found...
It was when I looked to my right that I discovered something odd!
But that wasn't all!
But I wonder... How long ago was this done? Who were the artists? And what became of them? And will those cave dudes ever catch that buffalo?
