11/25/2017: After Thanksgiving Vulture Mine and Splorin

Recommended Posts

Saturday 11/25 to 11/26/17: After Thanksgiving Trip - Wickenburg Area.

 

**Easy with the possibility of moderate** We ran some of this about a year ago and it was all easy but trail conditions can change so allow for moderate spots.

 

Join us as we take a series of mostly easy trails from Wickenburg, AZ to explore the Vulture Mine and other assorted mines. We will end at a natural stone arch/cave that has a great view of the valley. Vulture mine information here.

 

Optional Camping Saturday Night. If camping please bring some firewood.

I don't think Katie and I are going to make it. I've been super sick the past few days and still very much under the weather. Plus Cecil is still without taillights.

 

Be safe and take lots of pics for us
