By the time we got motivated yesterday it was midday and a long hike was vetoed by most in the household. We opted for a short walk and some local tourism. Salmon Ruins had been on our list since our arrival so we packed some water and headed out.
It was amazing to see the various types of construction used by the many different peoples who have occupied the site though its history. And to see it all surrounded by neighborhoods of modern construction made it all that more interesting.
It was scorching hot so we had the ruins to ourselves but we also did not linger as much as we would have liked to read the interpretive book given to us for our self-guided tour. We will certainly be back on a cool day in the fall. It got a thumbs up from everyone and we want to learn more when we are not melting in the heat.
In Nova Scotia we waited until midday to head out to give everything a chance to warm up... that is defiantly not a good strategy here!
We are learning.
Do you have any neat local tourist spots in your neck of the woods?
