Bannister House Ruin

By billma
Bannister House is an excellent example of ancient Anasazi architecture. It is located in the Grand Gulch area of Southern Utah at the end of a four mile hike through the canyons.

This structure was occupied 800-1000 years ago. Access was probably by some type of 30' ladder into the opening at the midpoint of this photograph. It would be a very technical climb to get there now, it would also be illegal as it is protected.

Below this structure is a Kiva which would have been used for spiritual purposes. Scattered on the ground are pottery chards and corn cobs preserved by the dry desert air.

What a fantastic structure. Great colour and rock texture. The crop seems to emphasise the sheer weight of all that stone above. Phil
