This had some nice surprises. Starts out lame, ends with a spectacular area. nChecked out several adjoining washes, slots.

We enjoyed this hike as it was the first time we have come across old mine workings, And I mentioned to my Wife that it was like the film "The Hills Have Eyes". After the open mine We carried on up the water erroded trail. We had the place to ourselves and enjoyed the views and different hike.

Went all the way up to the mine (some sources call it the Sunshine Mine) amid scattered sprinkles. Very ominous clouds hanging low. A generally successful trip!
