I've been by the turnoff for those ruins but never have gone to see them. I had no idea they were so well preserved. Guess I'll have to drive up there. Thanks for posting the photos, Tombo.

Love the raven shot. I have been up there a couple of times and really enjoy it.

Kitty - Thanks. It is definitely an interesting place. I'd love to spend time wandering around that desert. :)

Catalyst - Well, preserved AND re-created / reinforced. I would recommend a trip up. There's also a blow-hole at the main ruin site, which is AWESOME.

QD - I got lucky with the raven. :) Glad you've been up there, it's such a neat place.
