I have a deep affinity for finding and photographing the ruins left behind by the generations before us and the Anasazi are one of the great creators of dwellings and drawings over the past 2,000 years.
Located in a very remote area of the Desert Southwest this Anasazi granary (a rock/mud structure built to store goods) has withstood the test of time. Many of these ruins date back over 1,000 years, as well as their petroglyphs and pictographs.
This particular granary is adorned with a very well preserved pictograph of two big horned sheep. Upon close inspection of the pictographs you can see they are made up of what appears to be extremely delicate material...almost looking like sand/dirt mixed with a liquid substance. It boggles the mind that this has lasted through centuries of extreme temperature and weather conditions.
This is just one of the many mysteries of the Anasazi people and one of the big reasons I love the desert southwest so much.
