An afternoon drive/adventure!
More Indian ruins! There are so many around here, but this time it was Anasazi ruins in Bloomfield NM.
The ruins are named after the original homesteaders pronounced Saul-mon. The original Salmon homestead is still standing next to the ruins.
What appears to be a dugout house was turned into a root cellar.
The trading post and then various types of Native American dwellings for school kids to explore and experience.
The above dwelling is called a pit house, and there were several remains of pit houses on Mesa Verde but none intact. Just the dug out hole, so it was cool to go in one and feel how cool it was even on such a hot day.
Then we drove out to Navajo Lake to check out camping spots for when Suzanne and Jeremy come visit us in a few weeks.
it was a fun family drive, checking out washboard dirt roads with the kids singing “I’ll Fly Away” in the back seat. Now to retire to bed early.
Thank you LORD for the diversity and beauty you created.
