The Archeological Site

I discovered this when we were out here four years ago.

 I never have found any information as to what was here or when.

On my first visit back then I walked on out following this path and saw nothing.
But I was successful in losing the key to the motor bicycle I had back then.  Talk about panic!  Fortunately I stayed on the path during my exploration so I retraced my steps and found the key.  Had I wandered about among all that rocky ground I would never have found it.  
Big lesson learned: Never just carry the key in my gloved hand; put it in a pocket!


The Arizona Peace Trail is a 675 mile long off road vehicle loop in Western Arizona.
I thought I would take it back to camp.

I went about a quarter of a mile and then remembered this short section I would be on was a bunch of steep up and down stuff in very rocky rutted terrain.  Just something I really had no business doing out here all by myself.  So I went back the way I came.

Just this short section on the road was bad enough.  It doesn’t look bad but it is loose rock and gravel on a steep grade and just a couple of well placed rocks can cause you to loose control and down you go.
This road has been chewed up much worse than it ever was four years back.
Rains also have created deep ruts.

The coyote cleaned the bowl of the last can of dog food dumping part of it out onto the dirt.
I finally found a footprint.

Cute baby labyrinth. So long Mr. Coyote! Glad you took the easy path. Wonder what the archaeological site really might be.
