The plan was to drive Senator Highway and hit some points of interest along the way. Threats of rain and a muddy Highway had us switching to plan B.

Plan B consisted of a hike and a tour of both the Cold Spring Ruins as well as the Pueblo Canyon Ruins.

We drove in and Cherry Creek Road with it's creek crossings was kind to us today. No issues what so ever. Once at the trailhead it was a bit muggy and warmer than expected. Off we went heading to Cold Spring Ruins first. This two story beauty is so cool with its views and balcony. Along the way we would sample prickly pear fruit. The fruit was so big it looked as if it was ready to pop.

Then after a nice visit we rounded the corner and headed for the multi-units in Pueblo Canyon. I forgot just how awesome the hike into this canyon was. It is lush and full of water seeps and tons of foliage. You almost feel like you are in a tropical oasis. The dwellings themselves are always an impressive site.

Afterwards I decided to take a shot at reaching the top via a scree shoot just around the corner from the dwellings. While it is doable I am not sure it would make much sense to go up there for anything other than exploration. I looked on Route Manager to see if there was a trail close to where I was at and nothing really exists. I will say the views from up there were spectacular.

I returned the way I came and joined back up with The Eagle. It appeared that rain was going to break out of the sky at any moment. Luckily we only received a light sprinkle. Back to the Jeep and then an easy ride out.

We had ourselves a great day out in the Sierra Ancha today! I wish we would have had time to do Devils Chasm as well. Dinner was calling.
