|View of the site area looking west during the 1981
excavations. The white vehicle and equipment trailer are parked near the north
limit of the site; low back dirt piles flanking the main excavation area can
be seen to the right of the vehicle.
The line of larger trees marks Chiltipin Creek. Across the creek the upland terrain has relatively thin soils and is covered by thorny brush. The agricultural field in the foreground occupies the relatively deep soils across the broad flat floodplain (terrace). The muddy patch and darker linear pattern in the foreground marks an old abandoned creek channel.
