I met a fellow up here in the Cave Creek area that found a mastodon tusk in one of the desert washes that had been exposed by winter rains. Hard to think of parts of the West as being home to such large critters but it wasn't always as dry and desolate as it is now. Way back when, in a galaxy far, far away when I was taking archeology in college our professor took us out to see some fossilized mastodon foot prints that were left in what had at the time been mud near a watering hole. Seems like nothing goes away here in the Arizona desert, after all it's a dry heat.

I remember when I lived in Mesa Arizona in the early 90's they dug up a whole mastodon while grading for a housing tract. If I remember right it was near the south end of Alma School Rd. Maybe Mary Ann and George remember this event.

That was an interesting find way up in the mountains too. I missed the show but maybe I can see it someday. Thanks for the post
