Brooklyn Mine day run AFNM Jan. 2024 - TRIP REPORT

Recommended Posts

We had a great trip to the AFNM today to check out some ruins and petroglyphs.  Thanks to everyone who made it out........saw some familiar faces and new ones!  The weather wasn't bad at all!  The petroglyphs were phenomenal!  

 

The trail down from the escarpment to the Brooklyn Mine has experienced some significant erosion.......the trail rating for that portion could now be borderline 'moderate minus'.  But with some careful spotting everyone made it through with no issues.  Here are a few pictures:

I shared my pics on a FB group for exploring Az and someone shared the location of some more indian ruins.  They are on the hill just above the road near the mine ruins.  They are about 200ft in elevation higher.  Once I looked at the shared co-ordinates, I saw a bunch more ruins I didn't know existed.  In the attached pic, if you look between the arrows marked Ruins, you will see quite a few.  I also labeled the Mine office and Chimney for reference. Note: The photo is rotated with North on the left side of the screen.   It is .25 miles from the chimney to the ruins marked with the yellow pin.
