Was rummaging through some photos I never did anything with and I came across these from a trip last year up to cottonwoods bench - found a little rock cubby. It looked too purposeful to have just happened by nature but then it could have been the hikers from the week before that laid the "door" where it was! No sign that fires were made inside it but maybe it would get warm in there with the summer sun beating down on it. This was in the hills southwest of the upper rockhouses heading toward Nicholias Canyon.

A little rock "oven":


A bit closer look:


With the "door" propped open:

Yeah, probably right. I had the impression that it didn't quite look historic but not entirely modern either. Perhaps it has seen many different uses over time... Still an interesting little find out there.
