AKA- Corral Creek Butte RUINS 4910ft

Another rewarding, scenic, off-trail hike to a lesser known ancient Native American Ruins Site find by our
HAZ-ssk44.

This one had been on my back burner for a few months since learning of Eric's interest in us day hiking it back in Sept'17. I do appreciate his patience while I worked it into my so busy (lol) retirement schedule with juggling all my various doctor appointments, weekly errands, and out-of-state family visits between October through December'17 :)

It was a beautiful blue sky day with above average temps in the 60's for a January off-trail hike starting at 4640ft elevation. Our Park/TH Start was a little sketchy and noisy for only one vehicle just off the pavement of Hwy 60 North [ photo ] which also included a starting wakeup section of Catclaw Acacia + a rather high ranching fence that we needed to go under, not over, but just a minor inconvenience for a short distance before things opened-up and all was good again. There were signs of previous cattle in the area but not any evidence recently and their previous presence included a rather nicely laid-out hiking route from close to our TH Start most all the way to our planned destination [ photo ]

The surrounding scenery and easy to moderate off-trail hiking was quite pleasant in this border section of the Tonto NF with excellent views into the adjacent San Carlos Indian Reservation land.

My posted picset with captions and recommended GPS Hiking Route hopefully confirm our "thumbs-up" hiking day which also included an ending, satisfying stop at the newly remodeled, new ownership Mexican Food Restaurant in Globe- :next: J&R El Rey Cafe Reynoso's - Globe, AZ igallery/image_page.php?id=5410 :D
