Rug Road to Turkey Creek

Recommended Posts

Very scary and sad news: I just found out from talking with the Tucson Rough Riders that a few months ago a Jeep rolled off Carpet Hill all the way down to the bottom of the canyon (a very long way) and the man inside died. A helicopter had to be called in to retrieve the body. Obviously, sad news for the man and family. I wonder how it happened. Does anyone have any other information regarding this accident? Glad I didn't hear about it until after our trip, not sure if we would have done it because I would have been thinking the trail had gotten a lot worse than it was. Here's a link to the pictures from the Rough Rider's trip: https://plus.google.com/photos/112850697930635126349/albums?banner=pwa#photos/112850697930635126349/albums/5994125793043560145

 

Scroll down near the bottom to see pictures of the area and the Jeep.

The two vertical tube things look like the bottom half of this:

Perhaps the horizontal cylinders are parts of the top half of each smelter?

 

Pretty cool they survived this long. More detailed pics of the bases and interiors next time would be interesting.
