Short one after work today.
Headed West at exit 29 on I-19.
Where the road heads down into the canyon take the fork to the right.
There is a gate about 100 yards in.
-
There are faint remnants of roads on either side of this road.
I parked at a narrow spot where there are couple pieces of plywood leaned against a small tree.
-
From here I Just dropped down to the edge of the cliff.
The cliffs on the far side have lots of cool erosion. (shelter cavelike)
At this point the canyon is very narrow. The vegetation is thick but passable without much trouble.
Spent some time wandering around checking hooks and crannys and found a rock wall near the top of a ridge.
-
I decided to follow some cairns that were laid out in the general direction of the truck.
Took a detour when I heard bees.
LOUD bees.
Temp topped out at 79.
-
Almost forgot the most happenstance part of the trip.

About 100 feet from the truck I heard footsteps and saw a man about my age walking toward me.
He was coming back from the general direction I was headed.
We spent about an hour talking about mines, cliffs and rock formations in the area.
Greg Hawk.
Very well informed about the area and we traded some information about mines and rock formations.
-
Headed to the Grand Canyon tomorrow. Might have a bit to write about after that.
