1st trip
we had intended to follow hikerdw's figure 8, and started out clockwise on the bottom loop
got distracted by some of the peaks ahead of us, and contoured around to see if we could find a summit
ended up in rough-n-ready canyon, and headed north to the confluence with willow springs canyon
in between, went partway up a drainage to see what we could see up high
went back on the sandy road in willow springs canyon, then found a trail that cut over to rough-n-ready
accidently turned onto quartz crystal arroyo, which is a very nice trail, then finished sort of on javelina mine trail
so we didn't do the figure 8, and that can be revisited another time
explored some caves, saw some great scenery, saw a gila monster (3rd one for me but first photos) and an eastern collared lizard
saw six hikers and four horseback riders
more research is needed as i really don't know what the landmarks are out here or exactly all the trails we were on
intriguing area and some of the high points might be fun
thanks for the hike, john
