Pueblo Pintado


Hike #11 - Pueblo Pintado Chaco Culture Outlier Ruin (1 mile, 1 hr 30 min) - Inspiration to visit this site came from a vintage aerial photograph taken by Anne Lindbergh in a plane flown by her husband Charles. Today Pueblo Pintado is a squalid and depressing Chapter House (quite the contrast from pristine Lake Valley Chapter and others) with an interesting Great House Ruin. Some disturbing thoughts from the locals written in the trail head registry. To me the featured high light is midden after midden containing multiple examples of large pottery sherds, Rob seemed to win his argument with the turtle (or was one of the Buffalo Burgers slightly sushi style?) and was able to give us a lesson in Chacoan pottery styles. The Chacoan Verdi on Amarillo sherds (Meso-American influence?) were most interesting => http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=141666

The completed our "4-play" exploration of Chacoan Outliers. Check out;
