Great day for the hike to the ruins. Began the hike at the FR38/1076 fork and found that 1076 is almost entirely passable, when dry, by most vehicles. There seems to be only one relatively short section near the "pass" where small boulders must be negotiated by large tires. I wondered if it isn't a more practicable hike for those with 2WD to simply hike the creek from the point where it is crossed by FR203.

The ruins are in reasonably clean condition and I noticed only one place where someone decided we needed to see his/her initials carved into a fallen roof timber. The mid-morning sun had not yet penetrated the canyon, so the colors of the interior "walls" of the dwelling were vibrant.

Saw no one all morning. Abby had no problems from the vegetation and we met up with only one 4 1/2 foot snake (bull snake?)sunning itself on the road home.

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
Hikebot recommends using an umbrella to block the sun.
Avoid Heat Illness - do NOT hike when temps exceed 100 degrees, period.
