The final destination of Day 2 of #MountainWeekend was Hovenweep, since Jen had never been. After a few stops along the way we finally pulled into the VC parking lot in the early afternoon. The CNHA desk staff told us that the trail across the canyon was icy and to avoid it. We decided to hike around on the rim and take the advice of the nice lady. We headed down into the canyon briefly to look at the ice on the south side of the canyon, then popped back up on the rim. Even on the rim there was lots of mud and icy spots. The temperatures were in the 50s, so very pleasant hiking. We both got a little burned while walking the trail. We turned around after going out to Tower Point and seeing Hovenweep Castle, as we had dinner plans with a friend in Durango who was driving up from Farmington. Took 10 out of the monument and over into Colorado - it is paved all the way now, except for one 100 yard gravel stretch. Potholes are still awful. The roads to the outliers look hideous; don't go to them until it has dried out a bit more.
