Kyle pretty much summed it up. Checked this one off the list after much research and bushwacking. Refreshing to reach a dwelling with no graffiti. In enhancing the inscription looks like something like J. Woolsey or J. Whitley 1927? Almost completely faded. :D
According to the info. I've have read from the sources 1248-1312 cutting dates and core sample of 1316 although they say ceramics indicate earlier. I saw more corncobs at this one site than all the others in the Sierra Anchas and the entire Grand Gulch trip combined.
This has been on my list for a long time as it was 1 of only 2 that had still had the Gila site tags intact when visited for follow up research.
As the from here on named Kyle the Heartless mentioned, I did fall butt first on a particularly nasty cactus. A first for me. Fortunately the success of the trip came minutes afterwords providing much needed adrenaline to tide me over until my loving wonderful wife removed the ones I could not blindly remove myself.
As the name implies much bushwacking, through thorns, over dead fall in snow ranging from 6 inches to waste deep. A majority of this hike was in snow which was enjoyable. :sl: Really enjoyed this hike. Kyle the Heartless :sl: commented during the hike that all the hikes I take him on are short (he usually hikes twice the distance). He promptly fell asleep in the truck on the way back to town. :D Hoping to get back out to the Sierra Ancha for some more sleuthing Tuesday.;)
