All that is left of the ancient Indian dwellings is usually a ridge of stone outlining the rooms of buildings. This ruin is called the Puerco Pueblo and it is generally thought that these people were the ancestors of the modern Indians living in the Pueblo communities across northern Arizona and New Mexico. It seems incredible that these people could survive and even thrive in such a hostile environment. But we see a land that is much drier and was heavily over-grazed in the 1800 and most of the 1900s. I often wonder what their lives were really like back then.
