Hike #99 of the year. Had a mind to check out a small hill I had not poked around on yet, but found something else just short of there: the base of a chimney, and several piles of old boards. Although I have not taken that trail often, I have been on it several times, and had never noticed those materials. (I had photographed the ruins a few hundred yards east: http://hikearizona.com/photoset=23532 .) If you click the white & red pin "plot geocode" on the photoset, then convert to MyTopo, you will see several solid black squares in the vicinity of the photos. If you are not topo-literate, a solid black square indicates a standing building, while an outlined black square indicates the remains of a building. That, of course, is the status when the area was surveyed, which at least on paper topos is located in the lower right corner. For instance, Booger Canyon -- I love that name :D -- down in Aravaipa, has a date of 1972, which is actually relatively recent. Seems like most topos are in the 1950s some time. Considering what else is indicated for the Thunderbird / Cave Creek / 7th St triangle -- for instance, 7th St is basically straight, with no split near the resort (which is not on the map), I'd guess this is 1950s topo. So, that cluster of buildings existed 55-60 years ago. When I made that previous find, I did a cursory google search, but did not find any info about the buildings that were there.

Any long time (50+) year Phoenix residents remember the buildings just west of Cave Creek Rd, just south of Thunderbird?
