A long but great outting. Saw several large groups and many individuals but no one went where we were going. At the center of many Lost Dutchman stories. Black Top Mesa has long been considered a possible location of some if not the Gold Mines in question. The area is surrounded with very unusual rock types ,mixtures, and formations. One of the clues left by the Dutchman was.....anyone who knew anything about mining would never look here.....its just not typical. Some homework paid off in spades....we located the Spanish Hyroglyphics almost immediately. The sunburst, the compass, the master map, two different areas with Petroglyphs " ORO " (GOLD). Truly a thrill to find these things, of course the "morons", have been here and made there own contributions. We also found a Spanish Cross etched in some rock. We made great time so on the way back we explored the Aylors/Caballo Camp and mining area as well as Aylors Arch. There is much evidence of mining and again very unusual rock formations in this area. Weavers Needle stands ever vigelant.
