Vlad, have you been into Miracle Mile? What's its condition these days?

It's been many years since I've landed there.

Yes I have been there Dave. Not a typical RV surface I would say itís like Russian Flats of Montana. Leave you fairings at home and come not painted

Somewhere in Utah in the middle of nowhere. I have no idea what it is.

It's a good Cub strip. Plenty long but pretty rough. Yeah: leave the fairings at home and expect a rough landing and departure. The South end is 'much better' than the North end. Overfly it first. Bring your tiedowns. There are tiedown rings but only about 3 sets, as I recall. The River is a good walk downhill off the mesa. Great out-of-the-way place to spend time. Week days are less busy with camper traffic than week end. No facilities other than a restroom. Come equipped.

Default Ancient structures......

Those are likely pretty old and may have been used for grain storage. They put them up on a mesa to discourage animals from getting in them. You can see quite a few of those in the Four Corners area......

That's Fort Bottom Ruin in Canyonlands National Park. Around 700 years old, so we don't know for sure what it was used for. Maybe a home/defensive structure. Grain storage is usually smaller.
