This was a fun day. There was more ruins exploring than hiking. We parked the car by the windmill and as we got out, we saw three coyotes running in the distance.
We took the scenic 'bushwhack' route to the ruins. I punched in the GPS coordinates for the ruins and followed it. The bushwhack was pretty easy. The terrain was almost flat and it looked like the mid-west prairies. After about 15 minutes a saw a herd (about 60 ~ 70) of antelope running in the distance. It was a rare site to see that many antelope running. They would run then stop to regroup and run again. We got to ruins and they were not that impressive. Most of the walls were down but, it was one of the biggest sites I've seem (about 150 rooms). There was a pottery shards everywhere. The impressive thing was petroglyphs. We took the side trail down and was amazed at the amount and quality of the glyphs. We were searching for the Pueblo Pato (quack house) plyph. I was climbed up and down the canyon walls looking for it, but he eluded us. After much searching we decided to leave and check out the Squaw Creek ruins. On the way back we took the jeep road back and it made for a nice walk back to the car. I'll be posting pics of the glyphs and a Squaw Creek ruins.
