Yesterday we returned to these awesome ruins. From the sign near the trailhead, carefull scanning with binoculars of adjacent canyons allows you to see from a distance several other ruins. This wilderness is quite remarkable in the amount of ruins which are in such good shape within a relatively small area. The Cold Springs Ruins were in great shape. The pottery and some of the corn cobs that we found last year were no longer there ( :( )...but we did see a few cobs on the floor of the ruin. This 3-level ruin has a "balcony" which overlooks the canyon from a different angle that isnt seen from the entrance to the ruin; amazing! The hike probably wont take most people the 5 hours which are estimated in the hike description, but it all depends on how long you stay at the top enjoying this remarkable ruin. Hopefully we'll be back next year!
