You would expect to see their grid search tape if they had cleared that area, though...Tough_Boots wrote:Massacre Falls would not be a fun one in the heat and I think it would definitely be dry. Some of the hardcore Superstition folks do go out there in the summer though. Last time I hiked out there it was after the official search was over and the SAR crew was on their own. They said they were just then beginning the off trail search through some washes. This was exactly a month ago. It could have been them that dropped a sharpie and made a few cairns. You might contact one of the two SAR teams who worked out there and see if they covered that area.
There is a maze of trails and washes scattered throughout the Supes. That is just one of many places where they could have lost their way. With today's available GPS technology, there really is no excuse for it. Even though I know several Superstition Mtn landmarks, I'm still a Supes rookie. I don't do any deep exploring around that area without first setting a GPS waypoint at the trailhead.AzJess993 wrote:Could it be possible that that area might be where those three gold seekers might've gotten lost?
Grid tape? Wouldn't they take that down after the official sweep was done. I hiked trails they must have searched and there was definitely no tape back there.jeffmacewen wrote:You would expect to see their grid search tape if they had cleared that area, though...
