I've spent a lot of time walking the mesas east of I-17 but haven't spent much time on the west side - I was always curious what was there but didn't have any good leads or research.

Petrophile has done some good research and he invited me to come along to visit four different ruin sites, two he'd been to before and two were new ones he spotted in satellite pictures.

We had an early start and covered a lot of ground with his Jeep and on foot. All four ruin sites were impressive, all on hilltops or ridge ends (with commanding views), and they seemed to combine both fort/lookout functions (big defensive walls) with habitation.

Good day and I'll be looking more closely at the hilltops in the area.
