Kumeyaay Morteros

This view is looking down from a large boulder on to a collection of morteros (mortars carved into bedrock). These moteros were filled with seeds or plants and used to grind or crush the food for use by the Kumeyaay Indians.

This village and and many other sites in the Blair Valley are evidence of the thriving population of native Americans who lived in this area.
