  • Looks like Southwest Colorado. So many sites in the middle of a farm field. Great surrounding scenery. If you are expecting Mesa Verde or Hovenweep, lower your expectations. But, it's a great example of how these ruins are everywhere in the region.
  • It's strange driving here. But trust the signs and Google Maps. Parking is near two homes. It's awkward. But neat place!
