1st trip
Joe had us up in the Mingus area again to hit some old favorites, look for some stuff and hit some new areas.

We started on the well groomed 1500' climb up Yeager Canyon Trail. Once up top, on FR9003P we stumbled onto the remains of an old cabin structure. Pipe in the structure, suggested there might be a spring in the area. After a bit of a search, we have a new named spring.

Next, the adventure of finding a way off the rim. Chums found us a break in wall to get down to our next search. Geronimo's cabin had been on my list since @PrestonSands was there years ago. This is a place that you could walk right past, if you were not within 50' of it. Gernomio's Cabin was built by Geronimo Pena. He worked as a woodcutter for 37 years, supplying the community of Jerome with firewood. Born in 1877, he passed away in the cabin in 1957 of heart disease. His boots are still supposed to be there, but I did not notice them.

Leaving the cabin we found an old use trail. We lost it and found again, along with the remnants of another unmarked near dry spring.

Back on the familiar Gaddes Canyon #110, Gaddes #9037 and Black Canyon #110, we turned into Black Canyon/Burnt Canyon. Bovine traffic made our travel much easier.

Next up was Ash Canyon #539. We found a shady spot for lunch, before heading up to Kendall Peak.
It was a bit of a huffer for me on that climb in the heat. The views are totally worth it.

We finished off the hike exploring the off trail Little Yaeger Canyon. Slow and brushy in spots, with a few down climbs that we practiced Safety First.

Good times, Thanks for driving Chums, great hiking with you again.
