Pack a lunch and eat near the river. Restrooms are clean. Not busy and easy to socially distance during pandemic. The ruins were a super easy walk and were quite interesting. The surrounding mountain views were beautiful.

I could almost imagine the tall wooden walls that the soldiers would have had to protect themselves. The layout of the place, the "boot hill" cemetery. Just a step back in history.
