When we decided to put some events up Seven Springs and Sycamore on the calendar, I figured we would be hot, miserable and annoyed, but we really just wanted to get back to work and make up for lost time.

The weather has been nothing short of amazing. Perfect for getting out there and doing some exploring.

Took the approach of just picking off each route we came to, documenting what we saw and adding information in Collector. When possible we would split up, checking everything, including decom and admin routes. Ben got to see a bunch of adobe structures, I found mostly locked gates. :rolleyes:

Not a bad spot, my feelings about the bumpiness of that route aside.

May not have seen the cool lizard, but we did see a lot of trapdoor spider webs in one spot.

We finished with the area a little early, letting us leave a little for next week when we return to the area. Current high for that day is 83° so that should be a great day.

Stopped by the Adobe so we could all check it out before headed to air up. :mrgreen:
