A friend and I made our way to the Roger's Canyon Cliff Dwelling on a rare Monday off of work. We departed around 7am and quickly made our way to the dirt portion of the drive. That was slow going and we noticed snow as we got higher in elevation. We reached the 172A turnoff and we were surprised at how much ice was present. We played it safe and parked our vehicle at the intersection. We clumsily walked down the frozen road to the trailhead.

The start of the hike was slow going. The trail was frozen over and we were constantly slipping on the bad footing. We proceeded down the canyon and found our pace picking up as the snow decreased. After some time we could spot the dwellings off in the distance.

We arrived at the dwellings and spent some time walking around and taking pictures. We checked out the lower one and then headed to the upper. The upper room is in great condition. The roof of the one room was in surprisingly good condition for its age.

After eating some lunch, we turned back and headed back towards the trailhead. The return trip was much quicker. Most of the ice had melted and the footing was much better. We worked our way back to the vehicle and then back to town. Great day!
