Ruin in Butler Wash
Though it was snowy and wet.....the hiking in Butler Wash the end of this Feb was great. Even though I was not able to get many photos, I was able to get this one shot of a popular ruin in Butler Wash. Jim Talaric, a photograper friend, help me with the lighting for this shot.
Here is a grinding stone that is located in the same cave as the ruin above.e.
Beyond Mesa Verde is my site that I use as an introduction to the Bluff and Blanding ruins. I do not really update this site other than when a new book or something relevant comes along. Click on the above photo to visit~ BEYOND MESA VERDE
If you are in the Four Corners area and love Anasazi ruins, this is a great place you may want to stay at. Check it out. Click on the logo or the photos below to link to The Kelly Place website.
The Raven House near Kelly Place
Relax in an adobe-style lodge or cabins, nestled between sculpted red-rock canyons and majestic Sleeping Ute Mountain. Fruit trees and gardens, prehistoric Indian ruins in various stages of archaeological excavation, and the amazing natural beauty of this “oasis on the edge of the desert” provide a unique setting for your visit. A self-guided tour of on-site ruins or an archaeologist-guided hike into Canyons of the Ancients National Monument on their northern border will leave you wondering about what it was like here a thousand years ago. Enjoy the relaxed southwestern hospitality on this secluded 40-acre estate. RV and tent-sites available.
