A handful of ancient Salado ruins exist in the Sierra Ancha.  Here I sit in the doorway to an airy rock "porch" off a multi-story cliff dwelling.  Inside, 700 year old wooden beams still cross the roof in some places and a few other artifacts remain unpilfered.   <br /> <br />The hike is strenuous and the route finding somewhat difficult to access this remote gem.  The Salado people weren't kidding around when they decided to build this thing.   <br /> <br />May 2008

It is my hope that anyone that may visit this or any other archaeologic area consider their impact upon such fragile remnants. It may not seem like a big deal but touching, sitting on and walking around in such areas can have major detrimental impacts. Amazing site.
