What is

There is a bit more here than there is as Falais- quite a bit more, as a matter of fact. Several concrete foundations and sets of blocks remain, along with some scattered debris. Debris seems to be distributed over a much wider area and much more lightly that it was at Massie. Roads in the area are sandy, so advise 4WD.

Quite the foundation here, with two concrete steps forming a slab in the middle.
We're going to take a guess here and say that this is the remains some sort of telegraph or telephone pole.
We saw these blocks at Massie, only they were jumbled in a heap. Evidently the foundation for something, perhaps a water tank or...?
