    Indian pits

    Thereís something about the Indian pits that has been lost to time. The forest service puts forth home three possible likely reasons for the Indian pits in the Indian trenches. One thought was that it was used for hunting mountain goats. The second thought that they put forth was that it was used to store food. Them though most likely thought was that a teenager aged Indians would leave the camp and go be by themselves and fast for a few days and till they got their own vision of what they would be and they created these pits through their fasting. We climbed up to the nearest peek and watched the Portland skylight and seen some pretty cool things turned around and looked at the Mount Adams back country and it was dark and there was a very big expanse and I seen some strange things over there. I did not do as much video taping is there normally dead and if making videos this kind of soured a little bit for me but there was lots of great stuff to the video there and share but **** I just have to make do with these photos I did not do as much videotaping as I normally did and if making videos this kind of soured a little bit for me but there was lots of great stuff to video there and share but **** I just have to make do with these photos. My dog and I are camped up there and it was a really nice I got to catch up on some of the reading Iíve been doing and I got to catch up on some miles on the trail that I havenít been able to do I got the backpack with my family the other week.
    It was pretty dry up there so I had to pack all the water that you wanna do use are used my mom mini atomic stove from Miniball design and I used my solo stuff and I made SmoreĎs some real SmoreĎs with the with the solo stuff and I have a fried up some spam and mashed potatoes heíll tell you Iím going to stay away from mashed potatoes from now on when Iím in the back country and did you still sit well with me and I do spam and rice from now on.
    Are used my El Dorado Hammock from Warbonnet and Loco Libre ghost pepper underground and Wilderness Logics top quilt 40į. Are used Hammock Gear Cuban fiber hex tile tarp and are used got some of your backpack and my dog used to a Wolfpack dog pack.

    Excellent pics of some beautiful country. Living in Illinois I'm jealous of anyone living west of me.

    You totally need to get a black cowboy hat

    Benson, you have an eye for all that is beautiful and timeless
    Who is in store with you?
    Yea, you can stride high with a hat, you had a hat in other video. Maybe your dog got hold of it...

    Is the stone lined pit an Indian pit? How can we know Indians used these pits. Iím wondering what a stone lined pit could do for Indians...
    Food storage, religious ceremony, burial, storage of valued possessions, outpost lookout to keep watch for marauders, small protected sleeping spot...

    Tanks yíall. Yeah itís was cool. Yes Indians used those pits. Too many to count they have been recorded and are not to be disturbed. I love it there. I love my country and my county and I love my Lord. I am blessed to live where I do. And yes with a black cowboy hat I could be famous. Good thing I donít have one. Hahaha.
