Apache Shooting
Translation Apache Fort

Notes:jThis site is near the Upper Beaver Meadows in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is a fairly steep rocky hill that had been known as the Indian Fort in remembrance of a great battle between the Arapaho and Apache. An Apache war party of about 50 men had come into the park from the southwest. The Arapaho met them and drove them back the way they had come. The Apache made a stand in the Indian Fort and burned their dead in sight of the enemy here, an Apache custom. They then retreated to the north. During the stand they piled up rocks along the edge of the cliff and used them as a shield behind which to shoot. There were other piles of rocks found in the region which had also been used as walls.gsdfhgfsdghi}
