Nice Sunday morning hike that started out mighty cold, but warmed up quickly. We got up to the trailhead about 7 a.m. for the start, we parked just outside the gate and walked the jeep road up to the ruins. There are very substantial remains at the peak, remnants of at least 7-8 rooms, and a few good sized walls too. Many pottery bits around to find if you are keen for looking, there is also a collection already from previous visitors. We took a nice little break at the top, and then angled for the mountain just to the east with hopes of seeing the other ruins. We decided to take an approach from the north side, and bushwhacked up to the saddle from there. Going would have been cross-cutting a 60-70 degree scree slope from here, so we decided to just take a snack break and work our way back down. Good effort for some more nice views if nothing else. Surprisingly little wildlife to be seen out there, one rabbit and a few birds but otherwise quiet. The desert is very green out here, even some of the Goldeneye are blooming nicely.
