This was a great hike! Along the Second Water Trail, Bruce showed us around to some of his interesting off-trail discoveries: a chalcedony quarry where the Apaches made arrowheads - there were big boulders of it with sharp chips carpeting the ground, and a hillside rock ledge with petroglyphs.

Most of this route is familiar territory, but this was my first trip to the paint mine. The rocks and soil are such intense hues of red and magenta, it's quite spectacular how it stands out from the surrounding area. The mine itself is an 8 foot deep channel cut through the rock that you can walk through. Very cool. That section of the Boulder Trail is nice, as well, and the wildflowers are starting to pop up here and there.


It's always a fun day with Bruce and it was great to meet Borealis Biker!
