There were many rock slides in this area, you can see rocks of every size and shape on the trail and hillside. Seeing this area in its natural state, I can't imagine that anyone ever drove over this terrain. I'm sure it was just a dirt road, nothing like the roads we now drive on into the park.

When I left the campground on Saturday morning, I drove to Chapin Mesa in MVNP and went on a few more short hikes. I will create separate posts for these because I took a lot of pictures.
