  1. Looks like the dykes just west of turkey creek on the crown king road. Southern AZ is full of old Spanish workings. The workings are easy to find especially from the air. I have yet to see carved stone monuments or other elaborate stone markers. Some of their old trails can be seen in some areas, maybe I don’t know what I’m looking at but I’m skeptic effort was expended in carving stone monuments for navigational markers.

    Where am I ...?

    You beat me to it Adam. Used to go there when I was a kid.
  4. Had a slow week at work so I decided to crank out a google earth map of the Butterfield Stage Route through Arizona. I used a mix of GLO, old maps, and current topo's to trace the route. In areas the trail was visible I traced the route using Google Earth. In developed areas like Tucson I gave it my best guess based on old maps. Its interesting to see that some stage stations still exist while others are gone without a trace. Over the past few years Ive been riding/hiking the southern AZ sections and look to continue all the way to Yuma. As always check land status prior to venturing out. Butterfield.kmz

    Looks like the sw corner covers the Nantac rim? Lots of sweet cliff dwellings and caves in that area.

    rock survey

    There is a small placer near where I live that has gold deposited in Gila conglomerate. It’s pretty crazy how gold gets deposited sometimes. I would have never thought it would be a good area to work but the old timer drywasher piles proved different.

    Cool in Colorado - Gold Country

    Thanks for sharing. Silverton is one of my favorite spots in Colorado. Spent some time in the mayflower mine awhile back. The bunkhouse above the Old 100 is pretty amazing to see hanging on the cliff above.

    Your opinion welcomed

    Jimale, Why are you even asking if you are so sure that what you have are meteorites? You posted normal rocks in the past and your doing it again, what gives?
