a morning mile hike took us to Posi-Ouinge, once a large Pueblo settlement. It was lived in & left behind before the 16th century. on a desert cliff, overlooking a creek. with soothing hot springs waters nearby.
now we walk on large mounds of soft, sifted dirt, which were once 3-story homes housing thousands of people.
and the pottery remains are just damn everywhere.
fortunately the two of us share an ability to spend amazing amounts of time looking & finding. the possibilities of history filling our minds.
and like so many of us before, we left all of the found treasures behind. since they are not ours to take. and they are left in groups. sorted, displayed & treasured.
