Description:

Situated along the Snake River, Celebration Park was established as Idaho’s only archaeological park in 1989. A walk through the huge basalt melon gravels deposited by the Bonneville flood reveals petroglyphs 100 to 10,000 years old. Visitors learn about the Paleolithic and Archaic lifeways and enjoy throwing a dart with an atlatl. Experience a walking tour of historic Guffey Railroad Bridge and be captivated by southwest Idaho’s early mining and railroad history.

This was the forth stop on a Guerber Park, Old Fort Boise Marker, Leslie Gulch, Celebration Park, Initial Point Loop. Next stop, the Idaho Initial Point.
 
Rode past Point of Rocks where some friends and I ride trials bikes, but no one was playing this afternoon.
