This cache will be a nice hike and will bring you to a natural formation that will remind you of the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland.
This is a small cylindrical cache large enough for a log book and small trade items. I really enjoyed this location, but be careful it looked like some creatures may live here, but you can hardly blame them.
In AD 450, a small group of Shoshone-speaking people migrated to the Santa Clarita Valley. The Kitanemuk Indians, who lived in the Antelope Valley, called these people the Tataviam. The name derived from their words taviyik, or "sunny hillside," and atavihukwa, or "he is sunning himself." Thus the word tataviam might be roughly translated as "people facing the sun" or "people of the south-facing slopes." The Tataviam were more aggressive than the Chumash, who lived here at the time and encouraged them to move west down the Santa Clara River beyond Piru Creek. The Chumash referred to the Tataviam as "Allikliks." The Chumash word alliklik, thought by some to be a derogatory term, means people who stammer or do not speak clearly.
It is believed their spirits take the form of a Hawk and watch over their sacred land. A photo of the hiding location can viewed BY CLICKING HERE
