My thanks to Oregon Hiker for doing most all the route and historic pre-planning for this most interesting and scenic Sierra Ancha 1950s active Uranium Mines hike.

My guess is that no one had been up to these "Black Brush Uranium Mine Adits" since HAZ- Nighthiker's visit a number of years ago :) (see Nighthiker's post-comment below)..

Think this was where I found a couple of sticks of dynamite.. http://hikearizona.com/photo=403997 Placed them in a tackle box underneath the bench seat in the pickup camper. Forgot all about it, dad found them a couple weeks later while fishing at Apache Lake. He had a chat with me when he came back.


It was a real test of endurance and perseverance to so slowly plow our way through and up the dense overgrowth of Manzanita and Scrub Oak to reach these Black Brush Uranium Mine Adits, but well worth the effort as doing so has opened-up some additional exploration areas of interest along with having had a most rewarding visit this day to these historic 1950 Uranium Mines.

I always enjoy the remote area scenery around these old mining areas as much if not more than the history. For those history buffs, see Larry's most interesting, detailed triplog - :next:
