This was my fourth day hike of our 6 night (7 for GH) camping trip to the Sierra Ancha. I first hiked to this ancient habitation site in Oct 2012 but GH had not been there before and wanted to see it. It was time to revisit it. The site was more difficult to find and a tougher off-trail hike than I recalled. A good thing I still had my 2012 gps track to follow although it left both GH and I wondering where the heck it was going at times. I was a little spooked on that first visit because I was by myself and had almost stepped on a snoozing black tail rattle snake at the final approach to the site. So I hadn't hung around very long. This time I spent a little more time snooping and saw two thick wooden slabs on the floor of the inner most room that I had missed on the previous visit even though they showed up in one of my photos. :?

It's interesting to speculate on the reason for the odd layout of the rooms and what appears to be a connecting hallway to the back room. But having listened to my wife's suggestions for home "updates" on several occasions, the ancient floor plan did not surprise me. :M2C:

It was a worth while revisit to this site. There is always a lot more to be seen the second time around.
