Canyon del Muerto, AZ

Canyon del Muerto

Apache Co.

USGS Map, 1923.

Sp. "canyon of the dead."  Part of Spruce brook.  According to Powell's Fourth Report, this was named by James Stevenson in August, 1882, from the fact that while exploring the ruins of the "Casa Blanca" his party found several human skeletons in one of the rooms.
