1/18/18 Moon House Ruin, Cedar Mesa, UT (5 miles) - Trail was flat to start but sooner hike down to the steep cliff to go down to the McCloud Wash, one spot I was not sure how to go down, at that time Jonathan appeared and rescued me, he helped me all the way, thank you Jonathan, without your help I am sure I couldn’t make it. He is a rock climber and no problem at all. We saw main ruins, north side kiva area and ruins, and more ruins at south side.
