Lower Village Overlook
One bowl-shaped mortar about 7″ in diameter.
One larger bowl mortar with a V-shaped cone mortar inside it.
Both mortars on one rock.

We call this area overlooking the Lower Volvon Village “Louise’s Shelf” in honor of Louise Lacey, whose interest in power spots in the East Bay led us to this site and others nearby.This is a fabulous, isolated area to hang out in. The drop-dead views are an inducement to linger.


Another view of the rock.


A clear shot of Cerro alto de Los Bolbones. (High hill of the Volvons) That’s what the Spanish called Mt. Diablo. Chochenyo-speakers (East Bay Ohlone) called it “Tuyshtak.” (At the day) No one knows what the Volvon called it.
