I've been on this hike a half dozen times in the last 25 years. its a bit depressing to see the continual decline of the ruins which appears completely human induced. The first time I went the ceiling was completely intact. good time anyway. the creek foliage seems much more overgrown in recent years. this hike has suprised me a few times with interesting wildlife. one time we met a ringtail cat inside the cave. this time we ran into a troop of Coati's , at least a dozen and maybe more since we never saw all of them at the same time. I had only seen a handful over the years so seeing this many at one time was a real treat. there was several young yearlings in the group. I think we suprised them while they were drinking or eating in the creekbed. and our first sign of their presence was an extremely loud chattering by probably most of the troop.thought it was birds at first. that they kept up for a couple of minutes. I had time to get my camera out a capture the moment. Usually an encounter with a Coati involves getting a glimpse of one or two from their back side, this encounter when on for perhaps 20 minutes. They put on quite a show, they climbed up the opposite side of the canyon onto a cliff face spent a lot of time watching us in a very curious way. finally a lone wolf came back down to the creek calmly and steadily as if to say "I'm not afraid of you" he dug in the creekbed and was slurping something up from under a log. he had bees hovering everywhere around him which led us to think that maybe they were rooting in a hive. maybe they were just drinking along with the bees . the creek was very dry, I saw no standing water that day. please enjoy the photos, we also saw lots of quail driving in and a fairly large group of Javelina driving out
