Cedar Mesa/Comb Ridge
Recently my brothers and I decided it was time for a much needed BROCATION. We, well I, decided to head to a place that has been on my hit list for years Cedar Mesa (Comb Ridge was added at a suggestion of a friend) We left Hurricane bright and early, stopped by Bicknell to meet up with my brother leaving from SLC and continued our long, long drive. Eventually we needed to stretch our legs out and decided to hike up Leprechaun (?) from the bottom as far as we could. Eventually we made it to our campsite off of Cigarrette Springs Road. We still had plenty of daylight so we hiked to a ruin near camp (thanks for suggestion deadeye) The next day we saw Fallen Roof Ruin, then drove on to some of the Comb Ridge ruins/petroglyphs. First Cold Springs Cave. This turned out to be my favorite one, not for the ruins but for the corn cobs, grinding grooves, sharpening grooves, kiva, spring in the back of the cave, etc. After Cold Spring we hiked to Monarch. Two in our group scrambled to the left of the ruin, the other two (plus the other two groups who happened to be there with us) all decided it wasnt worth it as there was a pretty sketchy, well intimidating spot to cross before the ruin. Then we went to the Wolfman Panel. The next morning I wanted to explore Mule Canyon, but my bros were all ruined out and knew we had a long drive home. I atleast convinced them to hike to the iconic house on fire ruin.
