What makes you think that this is an old fort? How many more structures are present? By the looks of it, the view of the pic is pointed down into a small valley. Most forts typically are located in or around lowlands and near rivers where the soldiers have a 360 degree view of things, typically.

Where abouts is this located in the Manzanos?

the reason i suspect its a fort is mostly hear say i was told by a couple of old treasure hunters who picked up me and my buddy from a backpacking trip gone bad. they told me there was a fort in the area i described that a unm teacher found an bunch of Spanish armor in in the 70s. the "fort" is located above lunas north of comanche canyon there are several other rock squares i have found in person. regardless of what it is it took a lot of effort to build as small as it is i will be mding there soon after i have mded there i will be happy to show anyone willing to exchange other sites of interest with me for this one.
by the way thanks for the reply i felt alone on the nm forum lol
