1st trip
I had been wanting to go out and do some exploring in the Goldfields from the Willow Canyon TH, and I was able to persuade Tracie, my favorite and intrepid hiking partner, to accompany me today. We wanted to check out Razorback Knob, and also climb up to the Triple Arch in Black Glass Canyon. I partly followed a GPS track that @hikerdw had posted, and one that @joebartels had posted.

From the TH, we went on a series of trails that were fairly easy to follow and were mostly well groomed. After a while, we went on an off-trail bushwhack to the Camouflage Tanks; the bushwhack was not too bad for the most part. We saw the Razorback, but we never found Razorback Knob -- I was not sure which rock formation Razorback Knob was. I will have to do more research when I head that way again -- I would like to climb it if I can figure out where it is. After leaving the Camo Tanks, we buxhwhacked our way down to Black Glass Canyon. We did not go too far in the canyon before coming to Triple Arch, and we climbed up into the arch, which was fun. I enjoyed the trip through Black Glass Canyon -- there was almost no water in it, although it seemed a bit more overgrown than it was when we were there last, back in February of this year. After leaving Black Glass Canyon, we went through Rough N Ready Canyon before making our way back to the TH, on the trails that we had gone out on.

It was another nice day in the Goldfields, even though we got rained on a bit in the last mile or so before getting to the TH.

On the way back from the Goldfields we stopped off to bag a peak that had been on my radar screen for a while: Brown Road Butte. This ascent is probably the pinnacle of my hiking career -- it is hard to compare it with any peak that I have ever bagged! After the ascent, Tracie was almost more excited than I have ever seen her!...lol

The stats above are the total for the 2 hikes:
Triple Razorback: 11.2 miles with an AEG of 2,415'
Brown Road Butte: 0.9 miles with an AEG of 289'
