The first artifact recognized - a simple bifacial hand axe (or "chopper" or hoe or whatever) that appeared partially buried on the "driveway" up the knob after years of grading and erosion, about 25 cm (10") beneath the surrounding surface level.  (Author's youngest daughter included for scale.)

In the background and 27 m (90') below is the 200 year old pioneer road following an ancient "Indian" trail along the ridge, itself 90 m (300') above the surrounding terrain.
