This was another hike in the canyon through which Cave Creek flows(someone told me not to call it Cave Creek Canyon so it wouldn't be confused with the one in the Chiricahua Mountains). The plan was to search an area beyond the old 6L Ranch property for Indian ruins and other signs of habitation such as pottery sherd scatters and petroglyphs. After passing the well known petroglyph site on the 6L property I started my off-trail explorations and over a period of several hours found a number of petroglyphs and two small ruin sites to add to my list for this canyon. With these additions the list now has 125 sites including ruins, petroglyphs and pottery sherd scatters. After making these smaller finds I encountered a large compound style ruin with many rooms and a surrounding defensive wall. I was quite excited until I looked at my gps and discovered that it was one I had located 5 years ago. This ruin obviously has very few visitors because I found a small piece of sea shell which turned out to be the same one I found and photographed 5 years ago. Sometimes re-discovering an old find is just as good as finding a new one.
