On a recent trip I went to the Casa Grande Ruins National Monument it was a really cool place that I had been by but never stopped at.


The built a roof over it in the 1930's to protect it.



Here is a closer shot it has held up well for being built in the 1300's or so!



an info sign



Notice the well preserved door and stairs



another info sign



Some grafitti from over a Century ago.



The Natives apparently still use it for prayer ceremonies



Here are a couple pictures of the surrounding grounds that were not protected.






Here is a link that explains more if you are interested.

Anytime you get tired of that boring life of traveling all around the country I'm still willing to switch lives with you so you can come back home to Michigan... :D
