Hesitant about this area as popular with off roaders', which I was more of in the distant past. The area seemed to be problematic to get to but with my printed topo maps and the BLM excellent road numbering system I had no problem. Amazed to be the only one here. Quite a few petroglyphs and fortunately minimal graffiti, in fact the area looked free of trash and pretty nice. The road in did require 4wd in a couple of spots and short wheel base better, the Jeep did not break a sweat in the rockin and rollin terrain. Interesting seep/ spring area with surface water, a prize for this area. Fun scrambling around the cliffs, glyph hunting. Some old trails, very nice.

I drove to a nearby mining area, parked, started seeing the Jeepers' and ATVers'. I walked the old mining road for exercise and to look at rocks. Some underground, most in the area occupied by packrats with a lot of cholla brought in which serves IMO better than a mine gate.

Car camped in a nice quiet area where I saw and heard no one. Sun morning hike up an old road to a mine with some fair underground and nice ore. Dead bighorn ram at the base of a small boulder choke; still a bit stinky, didn't appear eaten by anything; wonder what happened. The mine adits showed sheep scat near the entrances. Nice road work part way up, looked hand stacked rockwork bordering the way. Drive out uneventful, this area adjacent to some fun stuff in the western part of the state. As per my usual, more to see and to do.
