Grasshopper and I were in the Sierra Ancha on a day trip to check out possible Indian ruin sites. Some prior research on Google Earth had revealed a mysterious white rectangle on a ridge top in a fairly remote area accessible by a rough 4x4 road. It looked like the collapsed rock wall of a compound style Indian ruin. The dimensions at 100 ft x 60 ft were similar to other compounds I've seen which housed about 20 to 30 small rooms and a courtyard inside a surrounding defensive wall. So we decided to check it out near the end of our day. The short hike to the ruin was more pleasant than the drive on 4+ miles of rough 4x4 road. We were rewarded for our minimal effort with confirmation that this was an Indian ruin of the compound style. The walls had collapsed but had been constructed of mostly white rock. Many pottery sherds were scattered on the ground both inside and outside the walls. Overall, an interesting find because of the unique white rock construction and a nice end to another beautiful day in the Sierra Ancha.
