11/2/2020 Chavez Pass, Coconino National Forest, AZ - Used to 1,000 people llve in the ruins. A funny thing was, I could not find even one ruin and rock art. I need to walk around to find it, but 6.5 miles of hike to get here, round trip was 13 miles, sad thing was no energy left to finding it.

11/14/2020 Chavez Pass Ruin, Coconino National Forest, AZ - I did a homework before this visit, so that where to look the ruins. It is located atop of the hill/small mountain. The ruin has several rooms but that occupied around 20 people, not 1000 people. I believe there are many more ruins around here.

11/14/2020 Chavez Pass RA, Coconino National Forest, AZ - I found some RAs, which one here and two there, spreading it with distance. There is no large panel, all RAs are on the medium size rocks. Unfortunately, there were hunters that cut short to my finding RAs.

11/16/2020 Winslow, AZ - Old hit music called 'Take it Easy' by Eagle. In this music 'standing on the corner of Winslow Arizona', since that visitors are keep coming. Location of this town is not bad, there is a major highway, but not much business, I wonder why? I walk around to found some uniqueness of this town.

11/16/2020 Marijuana Plant Factory Tour, Winslow, AZ - Just passed at the last election couple weeks ago to possess recreational marijuana in Arizona. The marijuana plant business is already booming. They have two green houses and plan to expand near future. Tour guide told me that one marijuana plant is $10,000 each, my assumption of this company is $4M worth.

11/17/2020 Puerco Pueblo, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - Pueblos are either stack up rocks on the ground or dig the hole in the ground and built block rocks around it. It is located little higher side of the Dead Wash.

11/17/2020 Dead Wash RA, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - There are many petroglyphs on the side of the Dead Wash walls. Some petroglyphs are sending us very clear message. It is located the same area to the Puerco Pueblo.

11/18/2020 Devil’s Playground, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - Only 3 permits per week for this area to hike, one permit 8 people maximum, where week starts Wednesday. I had no clue where to hike, there is no established hiking trail. Lucky me to join to Iris and Theresa, who did homework. Total 9 miles loop hike, time to time different rock formations and different rock colors, nice area to explore.

11/18/2020 Wildhorse Wash RA, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - I found some petroglyphs on the Wildhorse Wash walls, but at that time I was very tired, already hiked 9 miles. I decided I will come back this wash to explore some other time, I am very sure I will find more RAs.

11/19/2020 Wildness Loop, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - Lore’s Bridge, Flat Iron Panel, Gregory’s Stump, Angel’s Garden, Chalcedony Forest, and Road Grader, those are good places to stop to see the amazing petrified woods for this trail. Center of 4th row photo is the old road making tool.

11/19/2020 Flat Iron Panel, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ -This is one of the masterpiece RA panels in this National Park. There are many figures on this panel. One good thing is, we can close up to take look at.

11/20/2020 First Forest Point, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - This is a over 5 miles hike rather than 2 miles hike, which initially I thought. There are many petrified woods that dominated by red color, but many different colors we can see, and nice view to enjoy from atop of the mesa.

11/21/2020 Red Basin Clam Beds, Petrified Forest National Park, AZ - Year 2004, this national park was expanded, about double of size, and this area is new addition to the park. Elevation change is minimal for this trail. Color rich by area to area, some area is white, other place is pink or multiple colors.

11/22/2020 Las Mujeres Ruin, Tonto National Forest, AZ - Formally called the Squaw Creek Ruin, which changed name not long ago. This is about 200 rooms ruin, but I can see was 2 to 3 dozens rooms ruin because grass/weeds hiding rocks or building blocks of rocks were crumbled. View from the ruin is nice that canyon and mountains near by.

11/22/2020 Las Mujeres RA, Tonto National Forest, AZ - East side of the cliff walls, that runs south to north, are full of petroglyphs. It is a heaven for the rock art lovers, especially the red deer are eye catching. Trail is very rocky, give great attention for each step, and look up nice petroglyphs are not easy task.

11/23/2020 Brooklyn Basin RA, Tonto National Forest, AZ - This area is couple miles north of the same canyon cliff walls of the Las Mujeres RA site. Over here too, there are many petroglyphs all over the cliff walls. Red man and giant deer are one of the unique petroglyphs in this area.

11/24/2020 Rattlesnake House RA, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - Rattlesnake House is the name of the ruin that northwest from here and not far. I was not expected this RA site, when I saw it, my heart beat raised quickly, a good thing was I didn’t get a heart attack.
Go Top     
11/24/2020 Rattlesnake House Ruin, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - It is on the mesa that located south side of the Perry Tank Canyon at the east end. Also good size of the Tinajas in the Perry Tank Canyon near by. The ruin is used the same technique, stack up rocks, as other ruins around here.

11/24/2020 Perry Tank Canyon RA, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - North side of the Perry Tank Canyon, high up cliff walls that the petroglyphs are located, there are a lot of. The hiking trail is very steep, narrow and rocky, one place I have to climb up the boulder to pass it. Sad thing was many RAs are fading out.

11/24/2020 Perry Tank Canyon Ruin, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - Perry Tank Canyon view is very nice from the ruin. There are 300 rooms in this ruin and near by ruins, but I don’t think I saw 300 rooms. The road to get to the TH was so bad especially last one mile, my nerve almost break down, I am glad I came back safely.

11/26/2020 Hackberry Wash Ruin, Agua Ria National Monument, AZ - This is an east end of the Hackberry Wash. I’ve been to two ruin sites that different location, and there are some more ruins that I’ve missed. Both ruins are located atop of the hill with nice wide open view. There are many weeds growing in and around the ruins, just like any other ruins in the Agua Fria National Monument.

11/27/2020 Copper Creek Admin Office, Tonto National Forest, AZ - Rock house that was old Copper Creek Admin Office. Funny thing was, if come from east side, there is a sign said 'no trespassing' by the closed gate, but come from west side, there is no sign and no gate, free to walk in, isn’t odd?
Go Top     
11/29/2020 Tuzigoot National Monument, Cottonwood, AZ - It was excavated and replica, and located atop of the hill. A means it is visible from far distance, a ranger said, they didn’t have a concept of enemy, who is watching them. Each room has no doorway, because the entrance is located ceiling, use ladder to get down into th e dark room.
