Previous hikes I made a loop with a couple different descents down the north ridgeline to Senator Mill then boulder hopping along the Hassayampa River to Senator Highway with a couple rock climbs by some water falls. This expedition was a traverse ascending behind the fenced off mine (it is a tube no more then 70') which I will call the east ridgeline. On the descent, I took the "east northeast ridgeline". We should name each ridge like they name each ski trail at Snowbowl? I forgot to bring my ice skates. The Hassayampa Lake is frozen over and would have liked to have ice skated on it. Ohh well, next time. Always nice to enjoy a hike and not having to lug a camelback. Munched on snow for water source.

I did some sledding down the chutes of the mine tailings piles on the north side of the Pickerill Mill.
