Since the burn started near the junction of FR172 & FR172A I wanted to go out there and see what it looked like. First off FR172 & FR172A are in really good shape. The rains were not as heavy over there. Even the low spot crossing Queen Creek is leveled. I decided on parking at the Woodbury Trailhead and hiking up to Rogers Ridge. I wanted to hike the ridge before but the choked vegetation was not alluring. The ridge is an easy go now but you will pick up lots of soot along the way. I went up to Peak 5106 to look for the bench mark one more time but no luck. Hiking along the Ridge is a good way to take in the views. Mostly brush and grass were burned in this area so the recovery should be much better. I looked for the "lost Dutchman Mine" from Jack San Felice's Book but upon further evidence I was at another prospect above the site. The view of Weavers Needle from the prospect is close to the drawing that's made it rounds. Eventually I made my way toward Rogers Canyon. The Rogers Spring area did not burn and I saw a whitetail doe there. The wash above Rogers Spring was cleared out so I took that heading back for a while. Took a detour to look for the Lobb Mine which wasn't much of anything and found a dead deer while making my way down to Rogers Canyon. Rogers Canyon trail is okay but there is a lot of sediment around the creek crossings which is expected. I saw one hiker near Rogers Trough trailhead and passed no cars or OHVs on FR172 in or out. Apparently people are staying away from this area but the roads are good and the trails not too bad. Still optimistic...
