The second day hike of the road trip weekend was a loop on the Tige Rim Trail and Bonanza Bill Trail. The hike starts at the state line of Arizona and New Mexico but we soon followed the trail into New Mexico to see Tige Rim. The rim runs along the east side of the Blue Wilderness with great views of the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico. Also had the luck of seeing a bull Elk along the rim that was surprised to see us.

Eventually we made our way over to the Tige Rim and Bonanza Bill trail junction back into Arizona. About a mile down from the junction we came across some cool limestone rock formations that popped up out of nowhere. Interesting formations considering the surrounding terrain shows no signs of limestone so we hiked around awhile and checked it out.

After exploring we headed down to Hinkle Spring and a canyon narrows that was also the result of limestone. There was just enough water to pump if you are in need or camping in the area. We had a nice break at Hinkle Spring before heading back to the TH and another relaxing car camp spot :)
