Joined a Trail Mix Meetup Hike group for a return trip up to Black Mesa Ruins. Took the long way up the old powerline road and dropped off the southwest side of the mesa to return to the cars. The short way was pretty rough. There was a lot of slipping and sliding and loose rocks. I do prefer the long way for each direction. We are probably about 2 weeks short of full on wildflower season, but we were treated to quite a few blooms. Found a bunch of butterflies at the ruins site. Everything appears to be in about the same condition I found on my hike from 2 years ago. On the way up we tracked below my last trek at the end of the powerline road which had a lot less cholla on it!!
