Another hike with the Master of Miles and another day we were successful in keeping him under 30 miles.

Destination - a Surviving Cabin in the Mazzies.

Pulling up at the Doll Baby TH I was shocked to see that we were the 4th car at the TH. Temps were in the Low 40's to start and a bit breezy. So we got started to get warmed up. This 3.6 mile road walk to get to the Bull Spring Trail #34, just has never been my favorite. I suggested to Ken that instead of doing a straight out and back, that we throw in some options and he was agreeable. So we skipped off trail on an old road / trail at about the 3600' contour. It was thick in spots, but got us close to that top after 2 miles and 1600' in elevation. The views of the East Verde with and all of it's deciduous trees beginning to leave out, was stunning.

We checked out a dud of a mine are that I'd spotted on Satellite, and started once again on #34 to the Cabin. Once past the top, the nicest views were down into Bull Basin and then when we got to the cabin.

The Cabin was interesting but definitely has seen better days.

Ken went to do some additional exploring down the Wet Bottom Trail so Joe and I chilled for a couple of hours or so at the cabin.

It got a bit late to attempt the other off trail portion I had drawn up, so we stuck to Bull Spring Trail #34 all the way back to the road walk.

Last highlight of the day was the views on #34 saddle just above where the AZT joins. We hit it about perfect with clouds and waning daylight.

Another fun day out there with the boys.

Three Elk driving in, 1 decent size White Tail Buck while hiking, 4+ Elk and 1 Javelina driving out.
