Casa Grande Ruins National Monument March 10

March 10..... We spent our recovery day touring some ancient ruins of pre Indian civilizations of the area. It was interesting because we had a great ranger (from Pitcairn, PA), who gave us a great presentation and tour. Pictures will tell the story without me getting real into it in words :

On our way to the Casa Grande Ruins, we passed the field filled with gourds

This is how big these Saguaros grow!

Behind this sign and under the roof is the Casa Grande Ruins

At one time, it was 4 stories tall
