Maybe 'Paradise Overlook' is in the cards...? http://www.mesacc.edu/~bruwn09481/circlestone/map.htm

BTW - a few of us are hiking in from Rogers' on Friday about 11:30 +/- & will be at Reavis two nights; maybe we'll see ya.

Not much to really see there, pretty much just rock piles with a lot of juniper concealing the site, it will take a good imagination for most to appreciate and would be a let-down for many after seeing Circlestone, however, that link may help some stumble across a few gems out there ;)

Yep - I had first visited that site (P.O.) about 30 years ago; years and years before I had read about the site. Actually I was merely looking for a nice lunch-spot and, well, you know how it goes. Dumb luck is better than NO luck.
