Needed to get some exercise so headed up to Spur Cross park for a little off trail meander. Decided to check an old gold mining site that I located on my last meander. Since then I looked up mining records and supposedly there was at least one mine shaft there. The records also gave gps coordinates for the mine location that is about 0.2 miles from where I found the evidence of mining activity. Didn't have any luck finding the mine shaft and there was no evidence of mining activity at the gps location given in the records even after correcting for the different gps datum most likely used for the records. It was a nice hike in a drizzling rain up a dry wash with a mostly gravel bottom - no boulder hopping. A good day to get some use out of my Oregon rain gear.
