Lizard Men

“So,” said Lt. Stine, “my guess is you got into a little back-and-forth with the pertroglyph thieves.”

Bernie nodded. “We just tried to get the point across that those petroglyphs really belong to everyone and should be left intact. These were particularly nice – there was a lizard man and a couple with people on horseback, meaning they were late ones, after the Spanish came.”

“Why is that?” said Lt. Stine.

Bernie looked a little surprised. “Because the Spanish brought horses here.”

Hey! I was with Lt. Stine on this, hadn’t known that. I wasn’t a big fan of horses – such prima donnas – and so the Spanish, whoever they were, hadn’t done us any favors. 

“And I suppose these two thieves reconsidered their ways after you clued them in,” said Lt. Stine.

“Not right away,” Bernie said. “In fact, one of them pulled a knife.”

I remembered that very well, the long blade glinting in the sunshine.

    Not to mess with your plot line but…the Spanish didn't necessarily bring horses to North America. There are increasing numbers of historians of various scientific and non-scientific backgrounds who now believe the horses were here prior to the arrival of the Spanish on the east and west coasts. Quite interesting esp. when you find what we know as the Appaloosa horse depicted in ancient Chinese art, paired with the fact that the eastern land-bridge migration into North America is pretty well established. Some of the old petroglyphs and other historic records seem to support this. The only missing evidence could be labeled with three little letters: DNA.

    I have ran in the Cascadias, and I like them a lot. They are flexible enuogh to run on roads, and have a tough enuogh sole that they do well on rocky trailz. I especially like the stiffer heel, which keeps the shoe from wallowing around when on uneven terrain. The biggest shoe nerd that I personally know, Stormy Phillips, wears the Cascadias for the most technical trailz. Any shoe that he approves of deserves a try.
