Perfect day for this one--cool, cloudy, and breezy. Started around 8:00am, and made my way over to Skull Mesa. Once past the trailhead, I only saw two people a few miles in. Had a quick snack at the top, then headed over to the ruins. It was cool enough for a mile or so to need to wear a light jacket. Had lunch at the ruins, then headed back. Saw a couple of mule deer running across the mesa, but not much else. The clouds had mostly disappeared on my way down, and it warmed up a little, but still very nice. After Cottonwood Spring, I headed west on 247A. It gets vague in a couple of spots, but mostly easy to follow. Scared up another deer on that trail too. Finished up around 3:45. Nice to get this one done before it gets too warm. I'd hate to be walking through that tall grass on the mesa in warmer temps while having to worry about hidden rattlers.
