This was the first the Sierra Ancha trifecta on an overnight trip with my son to round out Fall Break. We left home about 12:30 and arrived at the trailhead around 3pm. Cherry Creek was a light flow, so no problem with the final crossing.

The last 2.5 miles to the TH were, as usual, rough, but we made it fine with high clearance 2WD.

At the TH, one other truck was present and clogging the entry to the camping areas, so we pulled up along side the creek and hauled our camping gear up to the site on a shelf above the creek. It's a great camping spot.

We quickly set up camp and then strapped on our packs for an afternoon/evening trip up to the ruins.

Met the owners of the truck around the chockstone area--a man and woman who were on their way back down. Other than that encounter, we had the place to ourselves.

Only pools of water along the slickrock area, making travel a bit less tricky.

Made it to the ruins around 5 pm and watched the shadows of the mountains stretch out to the east, as we enjoyed the views from the "porch" on the east end of the ruin structure.

On our way back, we explored the cave for about an hour or so. Cool place. By the time we exited, it was dark, and we made our way back to camp at the TH in the dark. Saw a skunk on the return, but were lucky enough not to be too close :-).

Back at camp, we enjoyed dinner, s'mores and a lovely night, to the sounds of the creek, gurgling along just below camp.

Got some shut-eye in anticipation of tomorrow's adventure up to the Cold Spring and Pueblo Canyon Ruins.
