I had a few hours to kill to I took off to the First Water TH to find the mine off Black Mesa trail. The mine is about .75 miles from the Second Water trail intersection on the east side of the trail up the hill. The mine goes back a ways but the floor is covered with teddy bear cholla spines so I only went in far enough to get photos. Afterward my hiking shoes looked like fuzzy slippers so I used a stick to remove the cholla fur. On the way out I took a detour through Garden Valley and checked out an alcove but there was nothing of interest in it. There was a nice breeze and the temps were cooler than yesterday so even though I started after 9a it wasn't warm at all.
