Steve made it down the Jackson cabin drive exercise in 4wd patience, and we met up Sat am for the loop hike to the Cave House. The guys quickly left me in the dust but I was having camera difficulties I finally worked out. After the up and over we got to the Cave House and we saw the sights. Seems to be holding it's own. The canyon is very pretty with the blush of fall still hanging on and some running water. I have done something to my left ankle since Parahant which bothers me off and on. I switched to my five fingers at the Cave House but could barely walk out of there. The last two miles had me gritting my teeth. Anti-inflammatory to the rescue. We had a nice fire and conversation then a colder night than the last with plenty of frost. In the morning I did a reconnaissance up the hill for the old mine road and promptly lost my car keys. Amazingly tracked myself back up the slope and found them.
We took off for the Jackson mine on the old road from behind the cabin. The trail into Redfield canyon has been worked over by probably the NOLS and is pretty brush free. Not so the old road. Long pants and long sleeves recommended. Great views as I remembered. We got to Mitchell Springs canyon and located the mine finally, the shaft still imposing ( to me) and we scouted around a bit. The ore has a few colors in it. We came down the pretty little canyon, and it was a breeze in Redfield back to the cars. Nice sky and light clouds and a little cool making it a great day.
Thanks to Steve for making the long trip into one of the special places.
