    Unfortunately, Don Jose, I have to agree with Oro on this one. Depending on the location, it is certainly possible that the edges and canyons of some of the mountains around the Salton Basin were close enough to the water some time during the Viking era to allow for the possibility that the ship could have been moved into the canyon, either by an extremely high water level, or by the Vikings, since their ships were commonly pulled up on shore, and occasionally portaged.

    There are tornado-like funnels along the California coast often referred to as Micro-Bursts...

    However there are no tornado's (or hurricanes) inland in the shadow of the mountain range...there are Santa Ana winds, but again not in this region.

    Damn it Mike! Reading the thread title and date, I thought maybe you had been poking around in anzo borrego again and actual re-found it! Man, wouldn't that be something...Has anybody got any theories as to how a ship's bow would be sticking out of a cliffside? Are we to assume that the rest of the ship is encased in the cliff as well, or that perhaps just the bow somehow ended up lodged/wedged up there?....and that shield-I read it made for a good tortilla pan or some such

    Mammoth bones were routinely identified as "giant" bones before modern paleontology. Red hair isn't an exclusive Viking gene either.

    um i think they do occur just as a rare event. weather reports from the area only go back about 100 years. in a way weather reports do not go back even that far as there was really no one in the area consistently making reports on the weather until the newspapers started. You live in an area for many years and you start to think that because the weather has always been the way you experienced it that is the way it always is and was. But that just is not true. As an example experts in historical weather tell us that there was a little ice age event between the 1400s and the 1800s that caused a drought in the area. Presumably the area could have been wetter in the Viking era.
    there was a desert tornado in 2015 admittedly not in the shadow of that side of the mountain range but still not all that far away as storms go.

    There's a petroglyph of a Viking ship in the cliffs above the Agua Fria River north of Phoenix also. I have no explanation of it or of the "space men" petroglyphs a couple miles south of it but in the same canyon. I can give general directions to anyone who asks by PM but getting permission to cross the private ranch to get to them is up to you. The ranch manger who I used to know died a few years ago in a helicopter crash.
