I am NOT a miner looking to stake claims on "precious" state land. Nor am I looking to piss in your backyard Clay.
I have my state land passes, PAID in FULL. I already have multiple access points mapped out and plugged into my GPS. This isn't my first time out on the Hassayampa. I was riding out there before the state went all nazi black boot about access to PUBLIC land.
No matter the composition of those deposits, I am disagreeing with you on HOW the current topography were formed. They are clearly horseshoe bends, both of them, cut by the Hassayampa at some point and are now weathered. If you zoom out and follow the waters natural course, it clearly shows it hits multiple obstructions and meanders into those horseshoe bends.
There's plenty to see out there. The USGS maps show this, so do all the previous BLM claims to these areas. No one, including the nazi state, spends the time and money to stake claims on worthless ground.
Again, I'm not a miner looking to stake claims. I am heading out to practice my geology and have some fun.
