In addition, there were some features from the homesteading period before the Park boundary was surveyed in (YNP established 1872, but homesteading and mining were occurring in the late 1860's). There are several cabin foundations on the bench from unsuccessful attempts. A number of juniper remains on this surface are part of Dr. King's climate study (so don't look too close, or you'll see evidence of his sampling). While looking at some of the study trees and remains, I wondered about a possible construct, maybe a dam?, located at the mouth of one of the gullies south of the Rescue Creek trail.
