Photographer's Note

This group of weathered sandstone reminded me of a castle with a 'double keep' on top.

The first humans, arrived here about 10,000 years ago, the "Hunter-gatherers". As they explored the Arches area, they found pockets of chert and chalcedony, two forms of hard quartz excellent for chipping or knapping into knives, scrapers, arrow heads, etc.
Then about two thousand years ago ancestral Puebloans raised domesticated maize, beans, and squash, and built stone villages for shelter. However, few villages have been found in Arches, only petroglyphs.
