first, a tibber style intro:
a month ago, johnlp and i hiked up to perry mesa from the agua fria river
didn't know what to look for in such a vast area, so we didn't explore
we knew that hansenaz has spent a lot of time up there, so we (i) strongly hinted that we would enjoy going up there with him sometime
others chimed in, so steve graciously organized a hike for us
he picked a variation of this loop and we all met up for the long drive to the trailhead via bloody basin road
new country for me, and beautiful wide open spaces in the agua fria national monument
got going mid morning, heading first for perry windmill, then down along rattlesnake canyon
found plenty of petroglyphs, metates, a few manos, pottery sherds, and quartz flakes
arrived at the first set of ruins which were quite overgrown with cactus, agave and catsclaw
wandered down to bob's tank, then went back to the creek, where we had lunch at a pool
dropped down the creek to another pool below deepening canyon walls, then climbed out to the north
headed toward the power lines, eventually finding the other set of ruins, also quite overgrown
nice petroglyphs in this area, too
headed back across the mesa to the vehicles, and had snacks and beverages courtesy of angela
the drive seemed to go more quickly on the way back
enjoyed seeing more of this area, and hiking with some new folks
thanks for the ride in, steve, and for putting this together
a great sample of the area
