Drove in to the Woodbury trailhead because I don't trust my AWD Saturn Vue to get to Rogers Trough trailhead.

We did this loop in reverse--starting from the Woodbury trailhead and taking the loop to the west.

Emma, Bruce the pooch and I got started on the trail at about 8am. It's the first time I haven't lost the trail immediately from the Woodbury Trail/JF Trail junction . . . some kind soul erected a few cairns, so we were good to go. Pruned thorny branches as I went . . . actually broke my pruners! Hiking up to Tortilla pass was challenging per usual. Weather was perfect. Clear, treatable pools were encountered on the JF Trail south of Rogers Canyon Trail junction. HIking down into the canyon, the brush was extremely overgrown. Unfortunately, by this time I had already broken the pruners . . .

I'm pretty stoked! I've been to this area several times, but logistics never worked out to see the ruins. Got to see them this time! Awesome :)

The creek beside Angel Basin was half-full and flowing. This particular evening happened to include a complete lunar eclipse as well. That was a treat.

It's a fun section of slight bouldering going NE on Rogers Canyon Trail past the cliff dwellings. Once we rolled in to Rogers Trough Trailhead, we needed to hike the road for about 2 miles to join the Woodbury Trail to the JF Trail and back to the Woodbury Trailhead.

Hiked into the crag. There is a separate photo album for this side hike from Angel Basin. Got a nice view of Angel Basin from above.
