Pueblo Pintado

This is the ancient ruin of Pueblo Pintado which lies about 20 miles east of Chaco Canyon, New Mexico and north west of Cabazon peak. It was visited in about 1885 by the Palmer family while exploring the southwest. They camped here while inquiring about the ruins of Chaco Canyon and their location. Little did they know that Chaco Canyon was so near, a mere 20 miles west of Pueblo Pintado.
