More points from Rhode Island

Reader Joshua H. writes:
I found these points recently at Rome point in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. I think I found a clovis or angostura point made from quartzite as well as a broken quartz meadowood point, Cobbs triangular made from purple red rhyolite and koens crispin point made from argillite.  All found far from the water where the river systems meet the sea in the wash out where the tidal pools meet the highest point of the beach.  Any help would be appreciated.

More pretty fall colors from - Everett Skinner Road Land, Wrentham



Kelly Brook - A short walk in VT

Drove my son back to Burlington VT and thought I would check the top of a brook up there near the Winooski River. So we drove and drove, followed a couple dirt roads uphill, parked and stepped into the woods.
It is getting hard for me to breathe when going up and down steep paths. And it was quite strenuous. On the way back to the car we spotted what I should have seen going in: a pretty typical little old mound:
 Note the quartz:
 It was convincing.
The pile was by itself; we could find no other traces, though the ferns were thick. This was about where the blue dot is next to the word "Kelly Brook"

Try driving to a distant mountainous state and finding a rock pile.
