Driving back from Moab we wanted a short hike with the original plan being Natural Bridges but turns out it's closed on Sunday's. Quick look at the map and we found Mule Canyon off highway 95. There is a self pay BLM station at the entrance and then short drive down to the Mule Canyon wash. Small kiosk marks the start of the trail which proceeds up canyon. About a mile up canyon is the House on Fire Ruins which we checked out first. There were two people at the ruin when we arrived and talked to them for a bit. Very cool site and location to take a break on warm summer day. Then we decided to venture further up canyon hiking another mile or so until we reached another smaller ruin. The walls of the canyon were now much taller and scenic then down canyon. The smaller ruin took more effort to see as it was up maybe 150 feet above the canyon floor and required some slickrock scrambling to reach. We took another break this time enjoying the ruin and canyon to ourselves before heading back the way we came. Pleasant hike back to the vehicle and fun to see a new area that has more to offer with time to explore.
