Day 4 of 4, Hike 1.

I've always wanted to check this place out, and my brother and sister being in town was the perfect excuse.

We got to the Nationaal Monument a few minutes before they opened at 9am and were 4th in line to get in.

We paid our $5 / head and started down the the 240 steps we'd later have to come up.

This seemed to have been a very populated area with lots of ruins located all up and down both sides of the canyon. The ruins on the Island Trail were in all different conditions. and very interesting to examine. They are doing renovations on the trail to the Northwest side and above, so the Island Trail is currently an out and back. Check their website before youy go http://www.nps.gov/waca/index.htm.

The Rim Trail is flat, easy, paved and affords some nice views from the top.
