This is a photograph of ruins along McElmo Creek near Cortez in Montezuma County, Colorado. At the center of the photo is a dry hillside covered in bushes and some small trees with what is left of ancient ruin made of stones. The dry land continues on into the background covered in more brush. In the very background is a mountain range of red rock that is also covered in brush. This photograph can be found on page 141 of John Fielder's book, Colorado 1870-2000 Vol. II.
