The other ruins we’ve visited in Arizona have been home to cliff-dwelling peoples (see this link to our other visits) while this one was home to Sonoran Desert farmers. In the center of the community is the “Great House” and the foundations of other smaller buildings and meeting and work areas surround the larger structure. Further out from the walls of the community were an impressive network of large and small canals for crop irrigation.

The Sonoran people abandoned (for unknown reasons) the area about 1450 A.D. archeologists tell us while the area was first visited by non-native people around 1690.
Here are some pictures of our visit, but you can find more information about the ruins by clicking here.
As always, you can click on any picture to get an enlarged view to see more detail.
