High Mountain Arrowhead

High Mountain Vista 4

In case you missed my High Mountain blog post for The Nature Conservancy, I wanted to show a photo of an arrowhead I found on the Fourth of July at High Mountain. (The old nickel is included to show scale.)

My wife Patty and I were on the Red Trail near the Reservoir Drive Trailhead, after a couple of solid rains, and the arrowhead must have been exposed.

I love to look for Chert, the type of rock that this arrowhead was made from, whenever I visit High Mountain, but I never expected to find an actual arrowhead.

In fact, I have looked for arrowheads ever since I was child, to no avail. So a pretty good day.

The Lenapes wintered in High Mountain's Franklin Clove in the late 1600s, so I figure the arrowhead might have been one of theirs.

I would return it if  it were feasible, but I think the statute of limitations has run out.
