Summary

Site 5LA6862, a south-facing rockshelter in the Dakota sandstone on the north side of

Welsh Canyon, contained a small, natural, pocket-like cache in its back wall. The opening of this

cache was covered with a thin and worn fragment of a metate that stood upright, blocking the

entrance. Apparently rodents had gained access to the cache area, and it had been disturbed

extensively by pack rats. Pollen analysis was undertaken in an effort to learn what, if any, plants

were stored in this cache.
