After Black Mesa and wondering how to fill the rest of the day, since it was almost four years since we visited the ruins, Tracey thought it would be worth another trip.

But deciding on it and locating it are two different things... it took plenty of thought to wipe the cobwebs from my mind and remember what road do we turn off onto and just where is the turn? After a few false leads along Cherry Creek Road the memories were slowly beginning to return, and at the moment I remembered the road, there it was, FR 38.

Still, the memory was a bit foggy... I remembered one steel gate and one fenced gate (Tracey as co-pilot gets to open/close the gates) but which of the small tracks to turn onto were still vague. So we continued driving until turning at the FR1076 marker... and driving and driving. Although not far mileage-wise, it seemed to drag on.

Getting closer now, the memory began to clear and we found the exact spot where we parked the Pathfinder. But now with the Cherokee, it was too easy to get lazy and drive up through the saddle, leaving us with barely a one mile round-trip to the ruins.

Short and sweet, to the ruins, seemingly no worse for the wear since we were here in July 2011. Took a few photos and video with the Galaxy. Too much shake! Even with stabilization it was too jittery (surely it wasn't me!) so I'll go back to my Canon SX60. If it doesn't look too bad after editing I may post the video later... or may not.
