Did this hike on Saturday, this time taking several of my grandkids who were interested. They enjoyed it immensely. They are old enough (17 to 25) to fully appreciate and respect the cultural significance to this area. Hopefully, they can take their grandkids to visit some day. Having made my first visit there just one year ago, I couldn't detect any deterioration in this jewel. The wooden poles that you have to climb to get in and up to the 2nd and 3rd floors did not creak any more than they did last year. But a year is a short time in the life time of this place.

Weather was great - the wind that preceded the storm on Sunday just started to come up as we were coming back down the trail.

Water level in Cherry Creek was the lowest I've seen in my 5 trips to the area. Hopefully the storm on Sunday and Monday did a soaker on the area and not a gully-washer. But the road was good.

If, in the near future, you visit this area and spot a wallet along the road or trail, it may be my grandson's. He lost his somewhere up there. Just PM me if you find it. Thanks.
