    We had to walk a ways down a winding dirt road to finally reach a hill we all went our own ways up the hill, found a flag holder up top then we regrouped and played follow the Hippy to the saddle and around to what seemed to be the less steep side of St. Clair Peak. Pretty hidden valley on that side.
    Then up we went to the peak, explored the top and spotted the ruins which consist of one "hippy sized wall" and some shorter walled rooms. Didn't find any pottery up here but the views were fantastic!!
    Scrambled down the steep side and back to the little double track road and to the truck.

    Lovely day for some ruin hunting!

    Hippy wanted to see some ruins and Devin was willing to drive. Our original plan was to go up the 17 but we decided to do something closer to home. We drove up in the morning and headed up Horseshoe Dam Road where we started following Hansenaz's track from last month. The route starts off following a dirt road. There is a spiderweb of roads and we did a combination of off trail and on trail to reach the first satellite peak. There is nothing of interest besides the flag holder in the shape of a cross. From there we dropped back to the saddle and then headed to the main summit. Once on top we found a small register and we signed HAZ in. There are no ruins on the true summit. The walls sit down below on a mesa. We checked out the area and didn't find anything else besides the walls. We couldn't even find pieces of pottery. From the ruins we bushwhacked back down to the road and returned to the truck. These ruins are just okay.
