Great hike today with my "lil bro" Mike, Randy S. and numerous friends of his. We got a later than anticipated start but only had to hike the last 1.5 miles along a pretty wide Jeep road. The first 1/4 mile seemed to be all the elevation gain but nothing too bad. While on the hike in, THREE Jeeps passed us with some others also going to the ruins. We all met at the ruins and there were at least 16 of us up there at one point.
The ruins themselves are in remarkably good shape not only for their age but also because of the ease of this hike. These are not as pristine or grandiose as the ones in Pueblo Canyon or Devils Chasm but they are beautiful all the same. Spent 45 mintues up there having lunch and taking pictures....then returned to the vehicles for some comraderie and cold refreshments.
