There are a couple of caves in the ravine with very round openings. When I was down there shooting before pics for the clean out project I happened to frame one that when put into grey scale looked remarkably like a giant eye and eyebrow.

He also waited patiently while I went to retrieve my camera. We chatted for a while and he was a rather good listener.
