Nice, peaceful area to visit on a summer day. Keep in mind that you will have some dirt roads to get there, so plan accordingly. You may need a different video and will need to see what the weather...

Great little area to hike. Seen deer, ravens, bald eagles, golden eagle(those things are massive!) Chipmunk, squirrel, cattle. Enjoyed reading the information boards telling about the area and it's past. River level was at a very low point.
Drove here on a dry, sunny day, in a Prius. Took both the north and south approaches, and the approach from the north unit is easier, and involves less travel on dirt roads. The roads themselves are good, except for the final three miles up to the ranch site. Watch out for ruts, and drive carefully to avoid getting your tires stuck. If you've driven on country roads before, this isn't as bad. I personally found the road to Chaco Canyon to be far more challenging. That being said, this place is absolutely magical. You can feel the stirrings of history here. Understanding Teddy Roosevelt almost requires a visit to this place. He came here to escape from the world, to heal from a great personal tragedy, and to rediscover his love of nature. There very likely would never have been a national park system like what we have without his time here. It's worth your time to come.
