This is the ruins of a adobe/rock house that is very old, maybe over a hundred years old. It can be seen from the road going through San Diego Canyon on the way to Jemez Springs. When I first saw this old cabin in about 1978 there were still most of the walls an roof on it. Now, mostly due to being vandalized it is almost gone. I know that weather has taken its toll but I am sure the rafters were hauled off or firewood at some ones camp as there are campsites nearby. I can't figure why any one is lazy enough not to bring their wood from home and leave our historic sites alone. I barbed wire fence is around this site but I am sure there are people that hop that fence and take parts of the walls as souvenirs. Wouldn't it be better to just take a few photos and memories? If you are interested or have one of the books there is a photo of this home when it still had walls and a rood in a Lous L'Amour book entitled Frontier. The photo is on page 111 and was taken by the famous photographer David Muench. The book was first printed in 1984 but I can't say when the photo was taken.
