Markers and Symbols
-- Page 2--
As has been mentioned before markers and symbols were left for those who
followed or came later.
This was for the purpose of relocating the Spanish mines by future expeditions or generations.
These symbols were universal. They spanned the language barriers
A couple of friends took me to this cross chipped into stone overlooking the Duchesne River.
The following pictures were given to me by my friend Dan.
He also gave me permission to share them with you.
Dan determined that this knotted limb must have been
smaller than 3/4 of an inch in diameter when it was tied into a knot.
If it had been larger than that it would have broken, instead it kept growing and survived.
This isn't the first time I have seen a tree
which has been altered to give it two trunks.
For more pictures and information about this direction symbol see the page about Brownie Canyon.
I will continue to add to this page as more interesting markers are found and documented.
