We left Canyon de Chelly early in the morning and drove to Hovenweep National Monument. Neither of us can remember being to Hovenweep before. On the way we passed through more desolate country. There was a large fire taking place and we could see the smoke for miles. When we arrived at Hovenweep we could smell the smoke and the sky had a haze to it.

We decided to walk the Little Ruin Trail which was only about 1.5 miles.

I was intrigued by the fact that several of the ruins were build in a gully. I would have though they would have been washed away in a flash flood.
