Q: While hiking the Houston Mesa Loop trail, I came upon a bunker-like building (deserted). Can someone tell me what it was used for in the past? Is it a safe building for anyone to be around?

A: "It used to be an old seismologist's station where they were checking for earthquakes -- this was way back years and years ago," said Gloria Alliger, customer service representative with the Payson Ranger Station. "It is all concrete from what I can understand. I am sure people have gone in it or poked around it. I certainly wouldn't, but that's just me."
