I followed Table Mesa road (main road) from I17 and it stopped at a Gate just before the river bed. Signs stated this was part of the lakes preservation area and that a fee was required. I parked in the designated parking area and continued to head to the Mesa. This area has obiously changed since the discription in the falcon hiking guide (ruins seldom seen) was written but the plus side is the gate now increases the distance of the trip. My GPS died at some point during my way back so baised on partial data I'm estimating a round trip distance of aproximately 4.8 miles. I was surprised that the ruins were in such great shape due to the fact that the old jeep road runs right along the mesa's base. Great views from the top!

I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open).

So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
