Yesterday while hiking to Red Cave (see my trip report at the same) I found the four outstanding rock and stone objects below:



This is a quartz rock scraping tool about as big as a dime



And a squared quartz rock and a round one, may have been used as anvils or hammers or ?


And this a stone (Limestone or Sandstone) block with a natural hole eroded though it as round as my finger and 2 inches through the stone.

I found the one with the hole in it beneath a area where water had flowed into a narrow chute landing right on top of the point where the hole is. Must have taken many years of monsoon rains to wash away the hole?
