After a quiet night in camp, we enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Butcher Hook and then eased over to the Tonto Monument to start our second day of a run to Roosevelt Lake and the Sierra Anchas.

The only way to visit the upper cliff dwellings is to take a ranger guided tour. Our group was about 9 folks. The hike up is fairly easy with lots of stops for the ranger to explain how the Salados used the environment to live here. The upper ruins are fairly well preserved. Enjoyed seeing some of the artifacts they have found in the ruins -- 600 year old corn cobs and squash stems were pretty cool.
