Mule Canyon Ruins

This is a remote Ancestral Pueblo (Anasazi) ruin site with many ruined towers and cliff dwellings. I had read about this site some time ago and was eager to go check it out. The site is not hard to reach, but hours of hiking and climbing are required to reach some of the ruins. I certainly wasn’t able to explore it all and need to return. The canyon bottom has a creek that probably has water all year and the people who lived here likely farmed crops.

The towers are only on the canyon rim. (Yes, I have found towers that are in the canyons themselves.) And the ruins are in hard or nearly impossible to reach places. Everything seemed very defensive in nature.
