The Shiner and Williams sites were documented, sketchily, by Kelley, Campbell, and Lehmer during their Big Bend survey in the late 1930s. These small villages or hamlets were located along Alamito Creek below the Cienega Mountains northeast of the river confluence some distance. There are probably many other small La Junta settlement features well away from the rivers. This points to the need for settlement pattern studies. Photo by Steve Black.
