I thought it'd be worth a visit to the Pueblo Pato area (Perry Tank Canyon Ruin) to 1) visit some smaller satellite ruins that were clearly visible by satellite after the 2017 fire, and 2) walk some mesa edge I hadn't been to before.

The dirt roads in are in pretty good shape until the turn off west toward the New Windmill...that one is rougher than usual and the Grand Cherokee I passed was surprised a Subaru could do it.

I visited about 10 satellite ruins (one or two rooms) around the main ruin...easier to find with the GPS outlines I made after the fire revealed them. I continued north to another part of the mesa and to a smaller ruin I had been too before (approaching from Badger Springs).

On the way back I found the only "new stuff" of the day: an area with a bunch of agricultural rock piles and bedrock metates. Unexpected because they were on a featureless part of the mesa not really near anything. Nice to be out for an autumn stroll.
