Sierra Ancha, Arizona
While writing my book Ruins Seldom Seen, which combines the
subjects of hiking and archaeology, I made numerous trips deep into
the Sierra Ancha to find a pltehora of amazing Native American cliff
dwellings built around 700 years ago. I am not highlighting those ruins
on this web page but instead are showing a few landscape photos I
happened to take while exploring this beautifully remote mountain
range in search of archaeological sites to write about.
