I wanted to see the actual 'Gisela Ruin' [ [ Gisela Ruins ] ], but didn't bring my Jeep and the water was too high, so I wandered around on the plateau on the west side of the river and found the ruins of a whole pueblo there! I've attached pix. I suspect everyone in the area is well aware of it, but it was news at least to me.

I suspect that the ruin Preston Sands visited was both a lookout and a refuge for all the people living below, to which they could flee if under attack. There are a LOT of such forts, from here all the way over to the area north of Lake Pleasant and areas to the north as well, and they usually have line-of-sight connections with similar forts.
