Salmon Ruins, Bloomfield, New Mexico

On our way out to visit Annette and Larry at their home in Utah, we stopped along the way to see a couple of Anasazi ruins in northwestern New Mexico. We started at the Salmon Ruins, just west of Bloomfield - we had not visited here before.

This site was preserved privately by the Salmon family homestead for many, many years. This is a photo in the museum.

Their gift shop had a great selection of Kachina dolls and related items...

Outside, on the trail to the ruins, Bill stopped in front of one of the restored homestead building, this is the bunkhouse.

Here is Nancy, on down the trail to the ruins themselves.

I went on ahead, as she rested a bit, along the wall of the pueblo ruins.

The next three photos are of the ruins themselves.

Later, we went to the Aztec Ruins, a few miles to the northeast of here - see my next post.

It was a very good day!

Bill  ;-)
