1st trip
looking for hikes we haven't done before
john suggested badger springs trail, which we've all driven by many times without stopping
he also found richinbar mine for enough to make a day of it
got an early start and set out for the mine while still dark
breezy and chilly until the sun came up
explored the mine ruins, which are extensive
found the petroglyphs to the north
think we missed the old townsite
checked out the old corral area
lots of cool old stuff
drove two miles north to badger springs exit and hiked down badger springs trail to the agua fria
went upstream through the boulder playground - lots of fun with plenty of water flowing
found a cairned trail and then an old road that went up on perry mesa
didn't really see or know of a destination up there, so retraced our steps
the mesa is huge, with great views and much more to explore
on the way out, found the petroglyphs at the confluence of the wash and the river
the day warmed up nicely
we had thought about hiking up to the black mesa ruins, but will save that area for another time
had to get back for the super bowl ;)
fun day seeing something new - two good ideas, john
thanks for driving
