Tortoise Hiker
I had time for a quick hike and decided to go back to Monument Canyon. Denny came along for the adventure and to see the old mine and the T-6 Texan crash site. We started early 6:23a and there was just enough light to see. The morning was cool and we stayed in the shade most of the time in the canyon until the hike out. We stopped by the stone ruins and looked at what seemed to be filled in mines. We then hiked up to the shelf on the west and hiked north to the old mine. After looking in the mine we boulder hopped up the canyon until under the wreckage. We scrambled up the hill to the aluminum pieces and took photos. At this point we discussed going higher up and then thought why not just drop over to the canyon to the east and return that way. Once on the other side, the slope was good but we were in a cholla forest. The hiking wasn't bad but you had to watch every step. We kept seeing plane parts on the way down and realized the most of the wreckage is actually on this side. There was a large section (probably from a wing), the engine and various other parts. We hiked out after a successful search and were back before 10:30a. Thanks for driving Denny.
