Rockshelter dig*

A nearby archeological site known as the Danskin Rockshelter is “unique for its rock art motifs, including a shield-bearing warrior, uncommon this far west into Idaho, and a spectacular representation of a heron or crane with a human figure dangling from its beak,”¹ artefacts of those who worked this area a thousand years before Moose and Mickey began prospecting.
