Along the Ridge

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 13 July 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

Pecos Pueblo was a large trading center long before the Spanish arrived. It is believed to have housed 2,000 people and could field 500 warriors if needed. Plains Indians would come here to trade.

The pueblo ruins is spread out over one-quarter mile (0.4 kilometers) along the ridge. Much of it has not been excavated.
