Great day doing some historic excavations, the first real archaeology ever done east of the Kaibab, at West Bench Pueblo with a crew from ASU/NAU. Just a few of us really, but super neat none the less. Weather was perfect.

Stopped by today, and what did I see? Some archaeologists under contracts with the BLM out of St. George, and some FS volunteers, doing some basic excavation on West Bench Pueblo! There's talk of turning it into an interpretive site, and maybe even a field school! Pretty exciting stuff. They're worried about the effect of an access road that runs through the pueblo, and the BLM may reroute that road in order to protect the ruins. Got lots of neat info. They'll probably be wrapping up their work by the end of the week, so its just great luck I happened along at the right time!

You wouldn't think it was May with all this cold wind and even a touch of snow! Yikes. Glad to be warm again.

Actually in an area near WBP, not at the ruin itself. Ran across another site, much smaller. Rectangular pueblo with a small plaza, probably single story. Very little visible wall remains - mainly the southeast wall, with a small toppled fragment on the NW wall. Good luck if you're looking for this one - you don't know you're there until you're on top of it.
