Absolutely wonderful trail. As Trish wrote below, we began this adventure after a car camp at Pottery Point, awoke to a frosty morning, a hot cup of coffee and needed nourishment, and hit the trail. The climbing is a real workout, but the scenery is so beautiful it makes it all worthwhile. I did have trouble blasting my 6'2" frame through the manzanita jungle, but that only adds to the fun! This is a very remote hike, and scaling the cliff walls overlooking this beautiful canyon really lends a very sacred atmosphere to this area. There are a few places where I feel an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility, somehow mixed with an awesome excitement- and this is one of them! The small set of ruins first encountered sat so serene there, on their quiet cliff ledge, as though still waiting for the occupants to return.
Not being able to actually access the incredible ruins on the opposite side of Pueblo Canyon takes nothing away from the wonderment of this hike! It was fantastic. The icefall itself was amazing, although it definitely was not safely traversable, even if I am in one of my usual insane moods. Knowing there is still so much to be explored in this canyon only fuels me to return!
A great trip with a wonderful adventurous hiking partner. Can't wait to go back, I think I still have a little bit of tread left on my tires! :lol:
