Bonfire Shelter/Eagle Cave
Located near Langtry, Bonfire Shelter (the bison kill site depicted in the exhibit at Seminole Canyon State Park & Historic Site) dates to 12,000 years BP and is the oldest example in the new world of the kill strategy demonstrated here. Eagle Cave, a large occupational site, is found in the same canyon. This tour involves a 100′ descent into a canyon – no trail- deep loose rocks make walking difficult. Participants must be able to climb over large boulders. This is a strenuous walk or approx. 1.75 miles round-trip. Tour is limited to 25 participants.

About Our Tours
The Witte Museum is proud to offer you access to its Rock Art Foundation White Shaman Preserve, named for the Foundation as donors.
In addition to weekly (every Saturday) tours to White Shaman, the Witte Museum also offers seasonal guided tours to numerous additional prehistoric and historic sites throughout the Lower Pecos region of West Texas. These tours are only possible through the kind cooperation and generosity of various landowners. The Witte firmly supports their rights as private landowners, who act as fabulous stewards for these irreplaceable archaeological treasures. With trust and friendship, they have offered their properties on these limited dates as a truly unique experience. Witte Museum members will receive discounted tickets to all Witte Museum Rock Art Foundation guided tours.
