1st trip
angela and i had planned a hike in the goldfields before i get to start working weekends
we did little or no research
i just pulled @rayhuston's track from a hike he did earlier this year
set out from the horse lot around 0830
breezy, cool temps at first
getting to the good stuff in the goldfields often requires a couple miles of walking on rocky horse trails
these seemed worse than i remembered, torn up by horse traffic
to be expected starting at the horse lot, and we will pick another trailhead next time
while we were following ray's track, we took a few wrong turns not paying attention and ended up with some extra credit
we saw crystal quartz arroyo, hiked on some nice slickrock, revisited anniversary arch, and had close up views of several landmarks: golden eye arch, helmet rock, razorback knob, the razorback
in the background was golden dome, which is still on my list
nice to be back in the goldfields, and nice to hike with angela again
feel like i'm starting over on getting to know this area
good winter destination and fun to explore unfamiliar territory
nice day and even double digits thanks to wandering around
dinner at los gringos locos afterwards
thanks, angela! will add links when you figure out what they are :lol:
