Wow, these ruins really are in great shape. We were fortunate enough to have several hours at them to just relax and explore. There was also a small ruin below this one a bit further up the canyon that could be reached. However, it was quite sketchy and NOT worth the risk to get to (it was just a single small room). The main ruins were excellent. We found (and left) several pieces of pottery as well as ancient corn cobs. Pretty cool! Great pictures, but the hike was very strenuous and is not recommended for anyone that cant take an arduous climb. Also, the river at Ellison ranch was uncrossable this week in anything but a high clearance vehicle or truck. Unfortunately, we got to wade through the ice cold run-off and added a few extra miles to our trek.
