Tucson Mountains cave paintings
Tucson is a great place to get outdoors, bask in the warm sun, and do some exploring. I took the opportunity to do some hiking with my undergraduate lab while I was back in town for Thanksgiving. We explored the Tucson Mountain range, not too far from the University of Arizona.
While checking out some small caves a short hike from the trail, we discovered the awesome cave paintings of the Black Sheep Pictograph Site. These paintings of deer and big horn sheep have been well preserved in a small cave along a mountainous slope. These were painted by the Hohokam who inhabited the Tucson Valley; it seems like these animals must have been valuable food sources, yet I'm more curious about which plants they might have foraged for.
