Jonathon Cooper, Technical Director In Geology, happened an intact ceramic pot and an accompaniment of pot shards in a small cave while exploring the Mecca Hills area along the San Andreas Fault. He reported the find to the folks at the Salton Sea Recreation Area who, in turn, relayed the information to the Anza Borrego State Park archaeologists and many others.

Thanks, I was wondering about that. Brushing aside the fact that…
In late June 1998, a severe thunderstorm affected much of the Cannon River watershed, including Spring Creek, which runs through the Carleton campus. Abutments of the Highway 19 bridge over the Creek were damaged, destroying part of the roadway and causing a semi-trailer to get stuck. Further upstream, a few houses were flooded, banks were eroded and an enormous amount of sediment was moved. By late January, the College was beginning to consider a protracted and expensive project to “repair” eroding streambanks on College property upstream of Lyman Lakes. On the basis of a quick walk-through in February, I doubted that eroding stream banks were a major future source of sediment to the lakes. Working out the details was a perfect project for the thirteen-student Advanced Geomorphology class in the spring, which was to focus on watershed analysis and a long-term monitoring network for Spring Creek.
