Having been advised by a fellow HAZ-er (the dude that's been up on Perry Mesa a kabillion times), that there's interesting "stuff" near Rattlesnake Ruins, we couldn't resist. That and the name. Gotta' be a story behind the name. The drive out was longer than the hiking time, but it was fun to watch the cows watch us attempt to negotiate the bumpy road. The ruins were similar to the others we'd seen in the past few days, but the pottery pieces were considerably larger. But we still didn't find any with designs or multi-colors. We tried to visualize the racetracks, but couldn't. On the circle back to the truck we came across a few petroglyphs and numerous metates. One rock had four metates and was sitting under a big juniper. We wondered if the great-great-great grandfather of the current juniper was providing shade when the metates were formed. And we wondered about the conversations that took place around that rock. "Hey, Judy. How's your sister doing? Still getting married to that fella' from the Valley? What's his name again? How's Bob's back? I hear it's still troubling him after dragging that deer up from the bottom of Lousy Canyon. Tell him I said "hi". And your daughter, Lisa. I saw that bowl she's workin' on. Nice stuff!"
