I agree with Astyanax , it looks fairly modern and for me too clean to be of any great age.
That in itself is not an indication of anything but I think the disinterest of local archaeologists probably is.
The standing stone needs to be looked at by an expert to ascertain the depth at which it is buried and if there are any finds around its base to give a clue to its age.
I feel the 80s is probably about right looking at the pictures.
After the secularization of New Mexico's Franciscan missions (1830-1850), Los Hermanos had no priests and no access to the sacraments. In this time they evolved and elaborated their own rites and sacred pathways.
