From Larry and my 6 night / 7 day (Fri-3/20 to Thurs-3/26/15) Sierra Ancha Wilderness vehicle camping and hike exploration trip, this was our first planned full day hike to loosen-up and enjoy this scenic and historic section of perennial Upper Cherry Creek.

This was my second trip into this area after our first introduction last March-2014. Larry returned in April'14 for a revisit to locate the historic Art Manuel's Cabin and Homestead area which was an important area I wanted to see for this March'15 trip. We also had plans to locate our March'14 previously missed Navajo Uranium Mine Adit and we were successful in doing so.

Going in we stopped by an old Cowboy campsite for some pics then a little further past this area we were lucky to find an official mining monument claim (rock cairn with stake) which held a wealth of historic information and dates regarding this area history (my pics with captions and tag notes tell part of this interesting story).

This relatively easy route finding (starting off once you locate where Cherry Creek connects ;) ) "off-trail" hike is highly recommended by me for most beginning intermediate hikers who enjoy scenic views, solitude, creek hikes, and old AZ mining and ranching history.

This visit we hiked further up the Cherry Creek Drainage just past the "Horse Tank Creek" Canyon intersection, then back.

A most interesting and enjoyable exploration day it was! :GB:
