After a real "butt buster" hike for me the previous day-3/22, Larry suggested an easier hike option this day to again visit his afternoon ruins site find from our campsite arrival day on Fri-3/20. The plan was to again view this now rather "rough", but once large Ruins Compound, then explore further up and down the plateau ridge line for hopefully more ruin sites.

From our campsite it took us no time at all to hike to this .5 mile one way site. After more time poking around this large site area for any artifact signs, we continued further up the plateau ridge line to a nice viewpoint area looking down a scenic section of perennial Cherry Creek. It was at this viewpoint area that we again recalled our interest from the previous day of hiking to the summit of very close and now in view Peak 5051 [ photo ] . At this plateau viewpoint area we had a clear view of Peak 5051 across Cherry Creek Road and once again this hike would be another one close to our present campsite area and require no driving :) . I looked at my watch and it was around 11am :-k then I looked at Larry who was still viewing Peak 5051 with his 60x zoom and I suggested we hike this afternoon to summit Peak 5051.. and that's all the convincing he needed.

We soon headed back to our campsite for a short R&R to top-off with more H2O, then we were again on our way.
