Fan & I explored further out of the Mesquite wash area. The Sycamore creek water levels were lower than last time, but we still have to route around a couple of deeper crossings.
This time I was able to connect the Mesquite wash to Log Corral trail/wash :y: . We took FR160 to FR1062. There the road turned into a single track that went down a canyon.
Then we came out on an abandoned road that lead me to Cottonwood basin / corral. Here the old road turns into a single track trail.
The single track leads you to a wash that dumps out at the log corral trail.

The following springs were dry: Rock Spring
Sandstone Spring
Yellow Jacket Spring.

I couldn't find the Yellow Jacket spring but that may have been because I left my yellow jacket at home! :lol:



Fan & I discussed how the water was at the wrong place on this hike. We had water at the beginning/ending of hike, not in the middle where we wanted it.

:SB: Four Sand rails stopped and asked how to get to the Sunflower Mercury mine. I told them they couldn't from where we were. I'm amazed how people can go out ATV-ing without knowing where there going or have a map/GPS.

I brought 7 liters of fluids and finished all 7 liters by the time we hit the jeep.
