great day, great weather. we had to walk a bit longer because we had a 2wd but still an easy hike. About 8 miles all easy stuff, mostly road. The ruin although not as spectacular as the ones down cherry creek was still worthy of a days worth of hiking. Lots of wild flowers and oh how green the desert was! got to see lots of wildlife, a couple of deer, a couple of javalina, cottontails, and a black tailed rattle snake.I have posted some photos and I think they will tell more than I can write.

A campfire must be extinguished by drowning it with water, stirring with a shovel, and repeating that process until the campfire is cold to the touch. A campfire is still a danger if it has any trace of heat, and must not be left or abandoned. Wildfires can begin by abandoned campfires that rebuild heat on windy days and then blowing embers ignite surrounding grasses and brush.
