It had been about a month since I hiked with Jack over by Superior, so we were overdue for another one. Most importantly, I needed to return his autographed copy of "Superstition Wilderness Trails West" that he was kind enough to loan me (no doubt in an attempt to rekindle a little gold fever :) ). Well, that somewhat worked, and when I saw that a talk on Jacob Walz was being presented at the Superstition Mountain Museum, I figured he would likely be going, and we could use that as the focal point for an interesting time. My hiking friend Paul is big on the history of the Old West, so I asked him to join us, which he gladly did. :D (Clay Worst's presentation is excellent by the way.)

We had a nice little wander around the area from Crosscut TH over toward the Massacre Grounds area, staying on the western part of it closer to the Praying Hands formation in a successful attempt to locate some things mentioned in the book. :)

After that it was over to the museum for the talk (fortunately I didn't spend too much money in the gift shop), then on to the Bluebird Mine Store for Beer & Bull (no shortage of either there)! :lol:

It was nice to meet Mike and get a chance to introduce you to Paul. We are already planning our next adventure, probably down around the Empire/Cienega Ranch and Kentucky Camp. :)

On the way back to Tucson, Paul and I stopped for monster burritos :o at Jalapeno's in Florence. Paul regretted eating the whole thing, but I knew to take half home for later. :lol: After that, he really didn't want to stop at the Gallopin' Goose in Coolidge for a cold one, but I insisted, and by the time we finished the Fat Tire beer, he was doing much better. ;)

It was just a super fun day! :y:
