Upon leaving Spruce Tree House, the snowfall tapered off, and I continued on in my short and hectic visit to Mesa Verde (I wished I had a couple of days to spend here...). The skies soon began to clear a bit, the sun came out, and I eventually stripped down to my usual shorts and t-shirt hiking atire. I had bought the guide book for the trail, but had conveniently left it in the truck :roll: , so I had no clue what most of the numbered posts were referring to. Mostly native plants, as I discovered later. Got to see two cool little ruins along the trail, the first of which was intact. The petroglyph panel was quite impressive, and so were the views along the hike. On the way back, mud on the mesa top gave me an undesired 2 inch lift, resulting in me bashing my head in on a pinyon branch. Loading up on cool stuff at the Chapin Mesa Museum gift shop delayed me, so I exited the park quickly and on two wheels : rambo : to pick up my wife in Cortez on time. I was still late. All in all, it was a good hike that I recommend. I can't wait to go back 8)
