    While there are many well known sites throughout the Colorado Plateau, there are scores of many lesser known sites. This presentation focuses on these infrequently visited sites from each of the Four Corners states plus a few from the Northwest Coast. 


    Dave Manley has spent over 30 years traveling throughout the mountains and desert surrounding the Four Corners. Many pairs of shoes have met their end on Dave’s feet. A dozen years ago he turned his interest toward photography and purchased a camera to accompany him during his weekend adventures. He became so good at photography that he won the first CNHA Photo Contest in 2010. He was also recognized by the American Rock Art Research Association in 2012 with the Oliver Award, for his work on rock art documentation at Sand Island in Bluff, Utah. Dave’s real job for the past 31 years is being a stone mason giving him an intimate understanding of the effort and techniques involved in constructing ancient ruins. He currently divides his time between Southwestern Colorado and Eastern Utah.
