3 Pyramid Stacks of 10 Pound Gold Bars Near Fillmore Utah

 Now I wish to share what I can now call a family story... but I did not learn this until just a few years ago...

The high Uintas is not the only hot spot for Spanish lore in Utah, several other places have their stories as well, and some places you never knew… one such place in which I became familiar with. 150 years before I had been there I discovered my G G Grandfather had already walked this trail...

Borrowed from the Salt Lake Herald 1896-08-15

In 1854 Brigham Young sent out an expedition party of six men, one of those men was Daniel Buckly Funk, one of the pioneers of Millard county Utah.

My G G Grand Pappy

The party of scouts made a careful examination of Millard County, and in the mountain about 20 miles South of where present day Scipio now stands they found a fresh and well used trail leading from the canyon up the mountain. The discovery of the trail was not surprising to these hardy men, but excitement ran high when it was found that the trail had been made by horses that had been shod, and the scouts had good reason to wonder at this discovery, as the Indians, then numerous in that portion of the country, never shod their horses or ponies.

Who then could have made the trail? Not white men certainly, for there were none in the country excepting themselves, and the Indians they knew could not have made it.
With curiosity arouse to the highest pitch they followed the well-worn path for several miles until at last they came to the bottom of a steep hill, and at this point they rested, being fearful of ascending, not knowing but that further on they might meet with a force that was larger than their own; and whether it would be friend or foe, they did not know.

Considering that “discretion was the better part of valor,” they began to retrace their steps, and on the way down the canyon they met an Indian, and as one of the party could converse in the Indian language, inquiries were made as to who had made the trail, and for what purpose.

The Indian who was well acquainted with that locality, informed the scouting party that the trail had been made by Spaniards, who were working a very rich gold mine just over the hill from where they were, and the red skin volunteered the further information that a few miles down the trail there could be found the spring where the Spanish miners crushed and washed the ore.
Acting on this knowledge the party followed the trail down the canyon and found the spring in the locality as described by the Indian, and also some pieces of quartz ore that was fairly lousy with the yellow metal.

The scouting party, upon their return home, described what they had found in their report to Brigham Young, who forbade them or anyone going their again, as trouble would surely ensue if they did, and so the discovery rested until it began to take the form of legend in the minds of the people of Utah.

In 1888 however Daniel Funk took his son young Dan, into the mountains told him the story of the Spanish mine and pointed out the mountain in which this long-lost bonanza was located.

The elder Funk has since passed into the great beyond, but his son, imbued with the idea of finding immense treasure in the deserted mine, has devoted nearly eight years in the endeavor to find it. He has prospected these mountains thoroughly but found nothing of value. This spring however he is determined to go over nearly every foot of the ground, and began to prospect the hill as closely as a field could be plowed.
( the Salt Lake Herald 1896-08-15)

Some 73 years later....

Just days ago I discovered the previous story and found that I have walked the same trail many times that my G G Grandfather walked, Daniel Buckley Funk.

The trail mentioned in the following story is the same trail mentioned in the previous story. Could the cave mentioned within be the same site the Spaniards were working that Daniel Funk almost came upon? The following story was first posted here in April of 2014.

The year was 1927 in central Utah when two cattle ranchers were making their last trip for the season to gather in their cattle which had been grazing in the mountains through the summer. The two men had rode their horses from their camp located lower in the mountains to the base of a well-known peak in the area where their cattle were last known to have grazed. They had gathered in all they could find and were making their last trip down the mountain to their base camp.

The weather was looking like a storm was coming and sure enough, when the cattle men were just a couple miles from base camp and turning into the main canyon from the north and heading west, the storm hit them with full force. The storm was quite heavy and the snow was hitting them in the face with a strong force which made it difficult to see. Even the horses were having troubles staying on the trail. The ranchers decided to let go of the reigns and let the horses instinctively seek cover. Immediately the horses turned around and proceeded back up the trail and turned north, where they had just came from. Not far past the turn northward the horses took off the main trail and began to climb an old steep trail, shortly after the trail went into a thicket of trees and the trail began to level out as they entered. They rode further into the grove and supposedly rode into a place where there was an overhanging ledge in a conglomerate rock formation.

The cave like overhang was said to be large enough the horse walk in with the riders still mounted. Once inside the cattlemen dismounted and began to gather whatever they could to start a fire. One of the cattlemen noticed in the back of this cave like overhang was a small hole large enough for a man to enter. Upon closer examination it was found to be a cave and large enough to further get away from the storm. The two men entered and began to build a fire. As the fire blazed they noticed a tunnel and making a make shift torch they decided to explore a little. One of the men making his way through the tunnel stumbled over something in the center of the tunnel, holding his torch closer it revealed a pyramid stack of what turned out to be fifteen pound gold bars. Further exploring, two more stacks were found.

In every case it seems when a story comes about such as this, it always seems that some one finds something and for whatever reasons they do not take anything and then cannot find it again. Well this story is a little different.

The two men hardly believing their luck and what they had found, gathered up as much as they could carry out. One man shoved a bar down his pants of which it slid down pant leg and broke his foot. Still the men managed to get out of there with enough to take care of their families for some years. When the storm lifted the men took careful notes of observations so they could return.

It wasn't a few years later and the great depression hit and anti-gold hoarding laws came into play. During these years of the depression it is recalled by some of the locals I have spoken to, that there was certain families in the area where the men lived, and being cattlemen none the less, it seemed they got through these depression years without want or need. It was 15 years later before the men attempted to return to their found cache site. It would seem even though they felt they had good reference points and the map, all they could do was argue about which hill they were on. The two men as far as the story goes, never found the right place again.

And again... some 70 plus years later....

Over 70 Years later the story would find its way to me by a friend who had contact with the original cattlemen's family and the Actor Clint Walker who also spent his fair share of time looking for this. Upon receiving the story in 2003, my wife and I decided that beings we had some good vantage points or things given as line of sight from the opening of the cave like overhang, that we could bring ourselves to a place between the two and for the most part backwards analyze it. This seemed to work quite well and knowing the other things used to triangulate the site we were able to find a target area.

We soon scheduled a trip into the area which isn't to terribly difficult to get into but takes a little hiking, the Actor Clint Walker spent time searching for this one which is in a way how the story came to me.... Clint Walker resident of Johnson Canyon near Kanab has since passed away.

May 30th 1927 - May 21st 2018

We had chosen what is supposed as being a forest service trail to make our way into this place, as we traveled along the wide and well defined trail we began to find things along the trail that made it very clear, this was no forest trail regardless of whether they claimed it or not. The first thing we found was a tree carving we never expected but well known from many years of being in the Uinta Mountains and actually dating the trees and the carvings where possible. This one was found carved on Mountain Mahogany.

When we found this right next to the trail it was clear that a likely employee of the Forest Service had attempted to carve over the trail marker in an effort to mask it from what it actually is or just better define what he thought was an old Forest Service trail marker. The glyph used to mark a forest service trail is the same as the glyph used by the Spaniard to lead to their mines and such. Many do not realize that the Forest service long ago adopted this glyph to hide the fact that someone such as Spaniards were coming here long ago. It is said by some that the way the glyph works is, that the dot above the line means the trail going in and the dot below the line means the trail going out, and that may be according to the Forest Service. But if the glyph proves to have been carved hundreds of years prior, who from the Forest Service was here to carve it? The true meaning of an authentic Spanish Trail Marker is, the dot being above the line means the intended mine it is leading to is ahead or up. If the dot is below the line as you face the tree, the mine is behind you and if you are traveling in the direction facing the tree, you are traveling away from the mine. This Glyph is identical in base meaning as the Native American Glyph.

Although we have never core sampled this tree nor the carving itself, knowing the Mountain Mahogany is a very slow grower, I called my Biologist friend and sent him photos for verification of the variety of the tree. He told me that it was more of a bush like a Juniper but that it was a slow grower like scrub oak and asked the depth of the over growth since it was marked of which is about 3 inches, astonished he asked what the diameter of the tree was and I told him 18 inches, again surprised he said you have a very old tree and a very old carving.

Continuing along the now very apparent old trail we found a fallen monument and not to much further up the trail we found another still standing but somewhat hidden in some Junipers.

Further up the trail are even more trees with the appropriate mark showing the mine is still ahead. This one is a Juniper.

An old Juniper with about 4 inches of overgrowth since it was cut.

In the same general area but further up the trail we found evidence of a silver vein crossing the trail, near anyone could see silver is present by the samples of stained rock crossing the old trail, If the image does not show it very well, there is a heavy blue-ish silver stained layer of rock crossing the old trail, a clear indication of silver. By this time we knew we were in the right area and we were certainly near to an old Spanish Mine and likely near the cache site.

Silver dark blue stained rock found crossing the old trail,
shining due to sunlight.

As the excitement built up due to the things we were finding, we just couldn't wait to continue. Rounding a corner further up the trail we find an unusual monument and past this point about 1/3 of a mile, we find no more trees with marks. The monument is built in an unusual fashion with an overhang built into it as if to say this is what you are looking for and from here you can see it. At the point of the monument however we could not see any conglomerate as was indicated in the story or so we thought. However a closer look and we found the conglomerate.

Author examining the Lichen Growth

This monument has since been destroyed and I have a theory on who it may have been and why, and this is one of the many reason why documentation is very important. To this day I can show you exactly where it sat, and this is important. Not far from this monument is the conglomerate we had hoped to find, whether we have the right deposit of conglomerate or not is not known. In sight from this monument is conglomerate ledges of which still to this day needs to be searched, but I suspect a lower location in order to fit the story. In more recent times I have discovered the conglomerate geological description is called Tintic Quartzite. 

We have returned a few times since, but nothing has been done to locate the overhanging ledge. The forest service has added a sign early in the trail which says no motorized vehicles past this point, at a point we use to be able to access long past this on four wheelers. It is a good thing our 4 wheelers don't have motors and instead have engines. ;-) It is now a much longer walk but not to much more difficulty. I’m not a miner, but I sure would like to get a geologist in there to find this silver vein.

I feel this story which began 160 years ago has been kept alive with witnesses for a reason... some 15 years ago I was all over this, a lot has happened since... Is there anyone with interest?

Lost and Found City of the 7 Foot Tall People


In almost every publication since the so called discovery of Tontonteac, this is the image that has been instilled into the minds of the people so that they do not realize the magnitude of the city known long before Jedediah Smith who is said to have made the discovery

Just imagine hiking through the forest exploring the possibilities of antiquity, wandering the desert terrain in search of things of the past or even traveling through the rural area near a populated area, and something catches your eye, something that causes you to realize that what you are looking at cannot be, or could it be? how has this existed for so long without being discovered or noticed… but deep within, you know the answer…

Many amazing things have been discovered on this land since the last flow of Europeans came to this land, amazing histories remain untold from times before… only hints found in the documented histories be it former explorers, Indian legends and sometime just a small notation in some academic work of the past, and these things it is a wonder that they to have not been swept under the rug by those who operate under the thumb of Smithsonian with their proclaimed purpose of  The increase and diffusion of knowledge, and yet since the beginning, have done nothing but give the illusion of knowledge promoting delusion in the carefully orchestrated history we have been fed since our beginning. But should we blame them? Or have we brought this delusion upon ourselves through our own ignorance as we simply would not have the truth?... 

There is yet to be discovered across this land, evidence or prior occupation of culture after culture some of which even if the evidence comes into the open, a majority will still refuse to believe. Imagine believing you have found an ancient city, buried under the refuse of some catastrophic event of the past… what to do next? Or should you? Because again within you, you know no one is going to believe this unless steps are taken to prove its existence and when that step is taken, Smithsonian steps in to go to great lengths to hide the truth, it is easier to promote and build a reservoir to cover the truth, than to go to the great efforts to hide an entire civilization from knowledge… a question I am not certain I will ever find the answer to…. What the hell are they afraid of? 

Most of us have heard of the discovery made in the Grand Canyon in 1909, this discovery as amazing as it was has been nothing but bastardized ever since, there were NO DAMNED EGYPTIANS! The irresponsible reporting NOW DAYS is out of control, but the efforts to hide the discovery continue even to this day with “their” last feeble attempt to hide evidence occurring in 2008 an attempt which nearly breached the dam by erosion unexpected in the flood tunnels, a dam that was built to hide even more upstream. but they didn’t tell you about any of that did they? After touting their success in restoring the sandbars in the Grand Canyon, it was and is to this day obvious that it  made no difference what so ever


From the USGS web site, so It must be true!

The Grand Canyon is a bit closer to how it was before one of the country’s largest dams was installed upstream. Three years of releasing water from Glen Canyon Dam to generate controlled floods has resulted in rebuilding sandbars in the Grand Canyon, according to a new USGS article published in Eos, the daily Earth and space science website published by the American Geophysical Union. These simulated floods redistribute sand and mud, which helps develop this critical feature.

Sandbars are an important part of the Colorado River ecosystem. They provide habitat for native and endangered fish, sand that supports vegetation and helps protect archeological sites, and the flat ground provides great camping spots under the stars.

"This study demonstrates the advantages of a robust science program dedicated to understanding the unique resources of the Grand Canyon," said Principal Assistant Secretary for Water and Science Jennifer Gimbel. "These findings will help inform decisions that benefit the Grand Canyon, as well as the millions of Americans who rely on this treasured watershed for recreation, water and power."


Helps protect archeology sites? Please tell us…. How?

Camping spots? As if there isn’t enough? Why the several restrictions on going ashore 

The following photos are a comparison in one case in the Grand Canyon which clearly shows NO change at all as a result of the flooding. These photos are representative however choose any sand bar in on the river and compare, after following the river comparing for nearly 100 miles, I found no difference what so ever. The only goal of this so called controlled flooding was to wash down and hide many evidences of a former city, to this day there are locations along the river where in it is strictly said you cannot put ashore… why? With river rafting becoming increasingly popular, something had to be done to keep the remaining evidences from being found.


Typical throughout the Grand Canyon



2017 just 9 years after the flooding

Another example of a major discovery quickly covered up and likely surpassed the NON Egyptian discovery in 1909, was Pueblo Grande of Nevada as they call it today, believed to have been first discovered in 1827 by Jedediah Smith but attention was finally brought to it in 1924 when it became very apparent as to the controversy this site was going to create. Smithsonian apparently jumped on the phone with Army Core of Engineers and plans were made to build a reservoir to hide the vastness of the ruins… oh ya,  and to provide water for the Californians. FIVE MILES of this principle city of the past was covered up figuratively and literally… This city was KNOWN long before Jedediah Smith in fact he likely had prior knowledge from the very maps the Spanish were using and where did the Spanish gain knowledge of them? 

Tontonteac was its most recent name before it was given the name of Pueblo Grande of Nevada. The use of the word Pueblo is to me, another way of saying Romans or Greek. It was obvious it was a city built upon city after city, it is suspect it was or is, the city of Anahuac mentioned by the Aztecs as the first and original city built upon this land when they first came to this continent across the west sea, it it would be several layers down under several other cities built by other cultures. According to Harrington, the never got to the bottom,.

Who can deny that Pueblo Grande of Nevada isn’t the same city marked on numerous maps as the city of Tontonteac? What about Pueblo Grande of Arizona as the same city noted as the city of Marata? What about all the other notations on the many maps? If there were cities found at these two locations what of the other locations? What about Axa, Chuco, Tignus, Ceoula or Cibola and the 7 unnamed cities? 

Following is the news article that appeared on no less than 14 newspapers around the country in April of 1925, 9 years prior to the completion of the dam that would hide the vastness of the discovery.


Mark Raymond Harrington

I love they way the writer keeps making Egyptian references, it won’t be long before the lazy reader and irresponsible media are proclaiming ANOTHER Egyptian City Found!


In many publication now it is said that the people were small.

Below are some of the MANY maps of the 15th through 17th century maps showing these cities, what of all the others on these maps and even those not named or shown? What of the many mound cities that were discovered in Utah just like those of the Mississippi Mound Builders? What? You never heard of them? The most famous, or should I say use to be was found in Parowan Utah with it huge platform mound like Cahokia, excavated IN PART by Neil M. Judd and then left to the local farmers to plow under.


Old maps showing former city locations

Other possible cities not indicated on these maps include one possible location high in the mountains near Utah county, one, maybe even two in the rural areas of Sanpete Valley, one rumored city in the Henry Mountains and one or even two under well known reservoirs. It would seem building reservoirs is a quick way to hide something and avoids a lot of questions, also creating a scapegoat.

Aztec Navigation Glyph

 Original Post March 9th 2015

Formerly referred to as the water glyph and key glyph

This glyph was first known as the Water Glyph based on the theory that it pointed out water sources.

Are we to believe that these 3 glyphs below point out the same water source they are all 3 pointing at? Are we to believe that at one time when this small basin had water in it that the Indians were just to dammed stupid to know it was water until they examined the three glyphs and ignoring the river below? I don't think so... but believe it or not, s
ome have theorized even stranger things.

After these glyphs had the name water glyphs, the phrase of key glyph was created simply because they looked like a type of key, but more importantly it was very obvious they simply are not water glyphs.

However after investigations and study of near 150 sites scattered throughout the regions with more than 250 known sites... but for the last decade, due to extensive trial and error, study and documenting these sites, it has become clear to me and many others, that these glyphs are navigational in purpose. This hypothesis would later be confirmed by a Ute Indian who showed me in part how they were used, explaining to me, "This is how we lay out our corals, it comes from an ancient form of navigation once practiced by our ancestors, but we have forgotten how it is done." With his help and many others over the years, we believe we now understand the use of these. But now the question beckons, What are they leading to and from? The answer to this will come soon enough, but not today. In the meantime, let your imagination run away with you. But not to far, as the places and things these glyphs were left for, hundreds of years ago to lead them back to...  may be closer than you think.....

Today we call them Aztec Navigation Glyphs.
The Navigation Glyphs consist of four parts; the first main dot which we call the Sun Dot and is always at the end of the long line. The second dot often present is identified as the Venus dot, used to indicate the season of the year and which clearly shows the positioning of Venus on the horizon at sunset. The circle represents the sky or better said, the complete round of the horizon, and the long tail which represents "Path" and in this case, the path of the sun, we also refer to it as the sunset baseline. 

The ancients responsible for these glyphs knew the destructive power the sun has on the elements, especially the sandstone with standing water, and in addition to the meaning attributed, due to the standing water, the long tail also had a purpose of providing drainage to the glyph. You will notice if you have seen many of them, that they almost always have the long tail which slopes gradually away from the circle, with exception of those that have for whatever reason shifted for some cause. I have observed dozens where in the rock they are found in, has shifted and as a result the glyph not able to drain, and in these cases, the glyph is in very bad shape.

"The Aztec Navigation Glyph"

The Aztec Navigation Glyph as we now call it, is called many other things and or thought to be other things, such as a water glyph used to locate water, sacrificial blood letting altars, eagle traps and even the remains of an olive press. Most of these ideas I can see how one would come up with this but the bottom line is, none of them hold water. Many questions need to be resolved concerning them and one in particular that I feel not many are in a position to analyze is, do they conform with LaVan Martineau’s theory? One of theories comes close and the creator has obviously done a little research on the subject but I am going to bring clarification to them and show you what they are really all about.

A not so typical Glyph

The glyph in the previous photo is found with two others surrounding a small occasional pool which is most of the time, dry. Each of the 3 glyphs found at this site has its tail as we sometimes call it, pointing at the pool in three different directions. Is it possible the Natives were so stupid that they needed to climb a 1000 foot bluff leaving the creek bank they were following, to find a small pool of water that they could not be sure that it was water they were looking at until they saw the three glyphs pointing at it before they knew it was water? I don’t think so.

If it was a sacrificial blood letting alter, some one please explain to me who it was that did Blood Letting to the tune of needing a collection system this large for its purpose? Do these people know what a blood letting ritual is? They didn't cut off their arm or leg for this purpose it was a simple piercing in which only enough blood was acquired to collect on a small paper like substance to be burned. The act of burning the sacrificed blood symbolized the transference of the offering to the gods via its transformation into the rising smoke. The frequency at some of the sites where these are found can exceed 10 within 100 yards distance. For those that still believe this was some sacrificial related thing, the Aztec sacrifices pertaining to cutting out the heart and the flaying of men did not start until long after the Aztecs had left their homeland, Aztlan, in fact near 300 years after.

These glyphs are found in a relatively small area comparatively speaking. From St. George, (some say Nevada) to Johnsons Canyon. 
Today, the furthest North and almost west location is believe it or not, near Cedar City Utah. The furthest west is located at the Littlefield I-15 Exit heading south to Las Vegas. It is suspect according to the Aztec record that the first Navigation glyph heading to the North is found on a hill 40 miles North of Mexico City, we hope someday to find someone in the area to verify it's existence.

 I myself have photographed and acquire gps locations on about 120 of the Aztec glyphs. They are always found horizontal UNLESS the rock it is found on has broken off and tilted, they are always in an elevation advantage point for viewing the horizon and when found in large groups; seem to be some what random within the confined area. They are about 4 feet in length with the often oval shape circle at about 18 inches in diameter.

The glyphs are without a doubt, Navigational in purpose but the tail does NOT point to any intended target, in order to discover its hidden intended direction one has to learn how to Navigate the glyph, other wise, why didn't they just put an arrow on the rock with the symbol for water? Why is it an encrypted glyph as it has long been suspect. Although I have explained the way these glyphs were used and I am not shy about showing some one, I will not expand upon in it here in full detail but will much of it. But I will explain somewhat how I learned how to use them and a bit about how to use them.

In about 2001 I took a Ute friend of mine named Paul Tabbee with me to the Arizona strip to document some newly discovered Aztec glyphs. When he first laid eyes on his first Aztec glyph he remained silent. He continued this not saying a word about them the whole day after seeing near a dozen of them. On one of the last ones that day he broke his silence regarding the glyphs and said that they reminded him of the way the Ute (Descendants of the Aztec), lay out their corals and then explained it to me. As he drew it out in the sand he explained that this comes from an ancient form of navigation that his people use to use, but that they had forgotten how it works. What he explained to me was the importance of a consistent base line that had to be present, something on the horizon that was consistent. After seeing his sketch on the ground which looked just like a Aztec glyph, I knew we had it. I admit however it took me a few days to let the base to line sink in as to how it was applied and it wasn’t until I returned home that I figured it out.

The answer to the base line was the Sunset, but this in and of itself was a slight problem knowing there are 3 distinct key sunset locations, fall/spring, winter and summer, of which was intended? Now, let me back up a bit, as with all glyphs I have encountered I have discovered the key to unlocking the mystery of a given panel, was to learn the subject of the panel, this enables you to do what I call a breakdown of the panel and as a result you can confirm or deny the suspect subject by attributing to correct base meaning of each symbol within the glyph. If it all comes together smoothly there is a high probability you are on the right track and if not, you best be looking for another possible subject.

Now applying the principles of LaVan Martineau and the break down process developed by myself, we can now analyze the possibility. In order to navigate using this glyph there are certain things that are needed. A Consistent base line, A Horizon, and in order to cast a shadow, we need certain positioning of the sun and a certain easily made tool to apply the principles, but how do you navigate 360 degrees by using a shadow? That will come.
Here are the base meanings attributed by LaVan and myself.

Now that we have the breakdown with the base meaning, let’s add in the derivative words of the base meanings using the suspect subject of Navigation.

In this picture above we find the best derivative word for the base meaning according to the subject and the puzzle begins to unfold. The easiest way to show how this works is to simply show someone how to do it. But that’s not likely going to happen for all so in a nut shell let’s look at the following images for explanation. Each portion of the glyph which is a combination of symbols now has its identification as it relates to navigation.

Now that we understand the basics of this Glyph lets begin the explanation. In the following image we find a glyph with the fall position dot, noonday sun dot and the sunset base line carved at 218 degrees. Place a 3 foot pole in the sun dot vertical and record the shadow location of 360 degrees.

Now using your own home built protractor stick using a couple of rulers with a hole drilled in them at the end and secured with a wing nut, adjust it to lay down in the sunset base line and the recorded shadow location lining it up and secure.

Then rotate the Shadow and Baseline pole so the baseline pole is pointing to the intended sunset, if the pole does not move changing the angle, the shadow pole will now be pointing in the intended direction of travel.

Now why would the Aztec assuming they are the one who made these, encode them so that only they would understand them?

The Aztec have had enemies since their conception and even long before they were known as such, pathways leading to things of a religious or otherwise nature may have been sacred enough to them as to not publicize where these things or places may be. It just makes sense regardless. However the question that most pondered by myself is why are these glyphs found in such a high concentration in a relatively small geographical area comparatively speaking if navigational in purpose? Others with singular locations commonly found at river junctions? These questions should possibly remain a mystery simply because there are some among the public that just don’t need to know.

I have known not only through reading but suspected in the past that the Aztec no doubt had a hieroglyph in which they used to navigate to and from key places, and one would no doubt be the caves in which they emerged and had lived for so long. If this hypothesis were true, then it would seem that there would be a trail of these glyphs leading away from the known general area in which they are found. At this time that area would be considered as being from the east at about Johnsons Canyon which is east to Kanab, west to the area of St. George, North to either Gooseberry plateau to the west or Kanab Canyon more so to the east and southerly I have documented them south of Colorado City as far as the Yellowstone Mesa.

What I have been on the lookout for over the years is anything stemming away from and outside of what we can only guess as the general area. The reason for this is, if these are navigational in purpose and according to the hypothesis were used to travel back and forth, then there must be a trail or even two leading away from this general area. The Yellowstone Mesa location almost insinuates this but it just isn’t far enough removed from the general area in which the majorities are found. Finding one further south from Yellowstone and isolated, would certainly add credence to one of the suspect trails leading to or away from the area.

Somewhat recent, a friend contacted me and told me of some new glyphs that had been found, and I had discovered through a report I had read that one had been found at Marble Canyon where in I would fully expect to find one, but I would not suspect any others stemming from that location with one small exception. Now if my suspicions are correct and this location at Marble canyon does exist, then I would suspect it as being an end location and thus, a trail of them must be leading to or away from this location and this is what my friend has brought to my attention.

From the Marble canyon location and about 120 miles as a crow flies, we find 3 more of these Aztec glyphs along the Little Colorado where I have suspected for a long time they would be found. Between the junction of the Little Colorado and the Colorado to Winslow Arizona and along the Colorado would be a great place to look as there is no doubt additional Glyphs in between.

I am also informed that another 40 miles to the South East from Winslow near Holbrook and along the Little Colorado is found a single Aztec Navigation Glyph. It would seem a trail is being established here. No sooner than I expanded upon this speculating as to where the possible trail may go from this southern location, another friend tells me two glyphs are found in Texas, although we do not currently know exactly where these are located, I would bet they are found along the Rio Grand at the western border of Texas.

One might wonder why 3 are found at this southern location of Winslow Arizona. It is suspect that one leads to the western trail or crossing of the Grand Canyon via Flagstaff, and one leads northward to an important feature or two near Marble Canyon or the old crossing just beyond, and the third, will instruct the traveler to the south eastern location found 40 miles away or one in between. In other words, the third is leading back to Mexico. This location of 3 is no doubt a junction of trails. I can’t wait to prove or disprove this hypothesis.
