went to the Sierra Anchas today with the intention of going to Pueblo Canyon Ruins in hopes of seeing a beautiful frozen waterfall following all the rain and freezing weather we have been having. It was not to be, most importantly cherry creek road is impassable between Devils Chasm and pottery point. see photos posted this date as to why. the photos should be self explanatory why this may take a while to remedy. recent issues with the state probably won't help to speed this up. that being said we walked the rest of the way up towards pueblo canyon. we encountered snow on the shady side of Pueblo (expected) but the real problem was as we got closer to entering the canyon the cliff face had a huge amount of icicles that were warming and falling down from great heights. it wasn't practical to enter the canyon and stay away from the cliff walls. we didnt get hit by any icicles but we did get hit with shrapnel from them, we retreated as a life saving measure which was very dissapointing because I suspect the waterfall at the end of the canyon was probably a huge frozen ice sculpture. also of interest was seeing the results of the fire in may on the upper approach trail to pueblo canyon (my first time up since the fire) it looks like the airforce napalmed the hill side. fortunately undergrowth is already starting to grow but the manzanita corridor was completely destroyed
