So awesome. Where did you enter/exit?

Wish I had spent more time there when I went. Only was there for two nights, so we didn't get to see a ton of stuff.

Thanks bob- about what I anticipated. Have had this on the radar for late March the last few years and had it bumped for one reason or another.

Awesome trip! The cliff dwellings there look really well preserved. Looks like you were able to explore several.

That looks like a great trip. I've only hiked the bottom few miles from a San Juan river trip. Your trip report is inspiration for me to plan a trip down there next spring. Thanks for sharing!
