Day two in the Cortez CO area took us to Sand Canyon southwest of town, a beautiful hike that also contains a large amount of Puebloan ruins.
We improvised a bit, bushwhacking and taking an improvised trail back on the other side of the canyon. Why? Because we saw more ruins over there, that’s why.
There was a cool “legacy” sign on the Jeep trail we hiked out on, clearly made before this area was designated a national monument.
