sears-kay ruin ride

went out for a solo ride this morn
i left in the dark and hit reach 11 as the sun came up.
headwind all the way to tonto national forest
and fate being what it is, headwind all the way back home.
when the dust settled i found myself out at sears-kay ruins.
900 year old hohokam village of some 40 rooms and retaining walls on
a hilltop overlooking a tributary of the verde river.








































































hmmm. what is that?

i have to admit. i phucking hate cave creek rd from
deer valley to cave creek.

and cave creek road.
