DESCRIPTION

Two rocks that were high enough that feed could be stashed on top of them, but would be out of reach of
wild animals.


HISTORY

These two rocks are where early pioneers on the Arizona Strip used to cache hay and grain on their way
into St. George so that they would have feed for their animals on the way back.
