We went over to SE Utah yesterday in search of the Painted Hand Ancient Pueblan ruins. After we missed the turn once, we turned around and found the rough rocky road. After about a half mile we found the parking lot and the 1/4 mile trail through sage, piñon and juniper and down some precarious places over the canyon rim we disccovered a tower and a few remaining walls. The ruins were certainly not as lage and magnificent as Mesa Verde, but never-the-less we were visiting a place where folks lived a thousad or so years ago and it always demands a sort of reverence. Here are a few pics of the adventure. As you see, I didn’t make it to the bottom as the trail became too precarious and I wasn’t fully prepared, not expecting the difficuty. So, be safe rather than sorry. I didn’t want to have to call Search and Rescue to haul me out with a broken leg. Already did that once and that was enough.
