Devil’s Den Rock Shelter

On January 21, 2018, the Rockingham County Naturalist Club visited a formation known as Devil’s Den Rock Shelter, on a local landowner’s property.

My apologies for the low-light contrast. This photo was taken in mid-winter at about 4pm. It is significant because it features a V-shaped fishing weir, constructed by Native Americans. The point of the V is downstream. The fish become trapped in the point, and are more easily captured.

Devil’s Den – the main entrance to the cave is to the left, obscured by the medium-sized beech.
