After a scenic morning drive with various stops on Cherry Creek Road (FR203) north & south sections between Billy Lawrence Canyon, we finally started our planned off-trail hike exploration up a north ridge of Billy Lawrence Canyon at 12:45pm.

Of the five day hikes I joined with Oregon Hiker to do during our seven day stay in this area, this one was my favorite and almost one we did not include in our original primary planning for this weeks' trip. I had always wanted to hike within Billy Lawrence Canyon ever since Larry and my May-2013 week camping and hiking trip to the upper most end of FR235 [ photo ] .

In April/May of 2014 Oregon Hiker was exploring for various ruin sites on the East side of Cherry Creek across from the Billy Lawrence Canyon area. He spotted an alcove area on the lower section of Billy Lawrence Canyon north side with a fairly large alcove facing a southerly direction.. a distant zoom pic and further evaluation did not confirm a cliff dwelling site but remained an area of interest for later evaluation. Our later evaluation was this 3/24 area visit [ photo ] . We had the afternoon to confirm or deny so we decided to "go for it" :)

I'm really pleased we took the chance and hiked to confirm this lesser known small, ancient Cliff Dwelling site and I only wish we had more time to explore below its bench area down to the awesome perennial waterfalls area (more than one) [ photo ] .

This was my last full activity day away from the campsite area and for me a very rewarding way to end another enjoyable exploration week visit to our scenic, rugged, and historic Sierra Ancha Wilderness :GB:
