What I wonder is how it is possible that the clothes have not deteriorated or ruined with rain, the snow, the sun, for all these years... the place was isolated and remote, but was it covered by trees and vegetation?

That area is pine forest. The little town of Summerhaven is on the road to Mt Lemmon. I haven't been up
there in years, but do remember the general terrain. The climate is dry, cold and snow in winter. HTH
