Room with a View

Sitting on the edge of the dry San Simon River bed this stone room ruin is slowly eroding out of the ground. Hemispherical in shape and built of flat stone a large lintel stone is visible on one end. It appears that someone has carefully cleared out the room but no other activity in the vicinity is apparent. Evidence of past inhabitants can be found all along the San Simon River. A large ruin lies about 8 miles to the southeast along the opposite side of the river, about a days walk, and this site is within a mile of a previously described Mimbres site on federal land. Whether more extensive material is present will require some ground investigation.
