|We were looking for camping/hiking options in southern AZ. Who better to ask than rwstorm himself?|
The Chiricahuas topped the list of possibilities. The West Turkey Creek area has lots of trails and camping opportunities, and was our choice.
Randy arrived before we did and had picked out a nice campsite along the creek. After we set up our tents, we all decided to venture up the Mormon Canyon trail to the old saw mill site and also check out Mormon Spring.
The concrete foundations from the mill were obscured by deadfall and we passed right by without noticing. After some more hiking uphill, Randy decided we had gone too far and started back down the trail. Kelly and I continued a ways up hill until we needed to return as sunset was approaching.
Randy was waiting for us at the mill site on our return. He also found Mormon Spring nearby.
By the time we got going again the sun had set and we had to finish the last bit of the hike in the dark. Interesting hike. Good times. Thanks for showing us around Randy.
