High 80's@ 5000' when it's not raining and only in the 60's now with the gully washer it's now getting.

Here's the location of another that's w/i a 1/4 mi. It would be for lookin at, only as it's on AZ Trust land, if I am reading the Assessor's map correctly.

:D I'll throw in lunch... THe forecast is beautiful for Peeples Valley .

Besides the possible arrastra( just 600' hike from the owner's house), there's our 43 acres just around the corner to be beeped..

WE recently had a "driveway" cut to the top of the hill that removed a good 3' of the surface..

5000' elevation.

Implying that there's, unbeeped ground uncovered- goes right over a albite?/aplite?/quartz dike dike that runs for several hundred yards.

Another landmark is Weaver Peak 2ish miles to the west.

RIm, At least in the downhill side "fill"from the cut to make the drive is soft. 'Spect the drive itself is a wee soft, too, due to all the rains. The soil hardens up when dry but it's gumbo when wet.

MIght get lucky enough to see some Big TOnkaToys playin "make the roads pretty". SOmetimes they breakout a D8 besides the roadgrader.

I might get backhoe in there for a culvert I "need" halfway up the hill where the dike crosses the road.

Question is: do I have him dig on the uphill or downhill side of the dike..... The dike itself will eat the backhoe unless he brings along a hammer attachment.

Nah, just baublite.

DAve was nice enough to drive up to an abandoned claim around the corner. Road, if you want to call it that, hadn't been rid for at least a year or more and monsoons tore it up.

We bopped around lookin' for sulphide traces and blue/grey(ish),red,purpley quartz rocks, checked out claim markers, centipedes, scorpions( dang the babies are SMALL!)
