After hitting Hieroglyphics Canyon, we drove the Titan over to Peralta Road and explored the numerous jeep roads that go north from the road.

The first one was up to a formation called Tunnas Outcrop. I have seen that on maps, but have never been up there. The road up to it was brutal. But, we did it with smiles on our faces....ha ha The views up here are spectacular. The entire SW mountain is in view - Peak 5057, the Three Sisters, Turks Head, the Wedding Cake. You can also see Hewitt Canyon and Phoenix clearly. Great spot. I will be back for a sunrise or sunset when conditions are good.

After driving back down, we drove a little further north and picked up another road where the wash gets close to the road. I have been up there before, but I stopped before it ended. This time, we just pushed through and drove all the way to the wilderness boundary and the Lost Gold Mine Trail. We got out and hopped the fence and hiked around the area, loving the views of the Three Sisters and the surrounding views. It's only a 2 mile hike to this location from the Carney Springs or the LGM TH, but this was an interesting exploration. The road is really rough in the final approach.

This area is in the Arizona State Trust Land area and a permit is technically required. I buy one every year and keep it in the truck. I have never seen a ranger out enforcing this, but you never know?
