While driving west on FR 67 towards senator highway, I noticed a spiral glyph just barely above the water/sand to the left of the road, which led to this side hike. We parked at the FR 9213 A (which goes north from FR 67). At first we hiked south following the creek and found several faded glyphs along the way, then doubled back to go north, finding 2 small spots with walls and a few more glyphs, but as our main goal was mt union and then Prescott before going back to phoenix area, we did not throughly explore the area. I was not able to find any other trip logs or photo sets of this area despite close proximity to road that said it’s easy to miss if not looking...I look and don’t see anything on 99.9 pct of the rocks I see from the Jeep window but got lucky this time.
As a side note we never made it to mt union. Despite warm temps there was still snow up to ~18 deep on parts of road in shaded areas and while we never stopped moving completely I didn’t think it was a great idea to keep stressing the Jeep as the front axel was deep enough that it was plowing the snow uphill in snow that kept getting deeper. It was amazing how quickly the road turned from no snow to over a foot deep. When we warned another group at palace station on the way back they didn’t believe us until we showed the pictures. Either way it was a fun trip for us and kids enjoyed the snow we were almost stuck in.
