Unnamed Canyon in Buckhorn Wash

06 Mar

I have noticed an old road going into a small side canyon in Buckhorn Wash. While driving down to the bridge, I decided to check it out. While heading up, I jumped a herd of deer. There were 11 in all.

Following the Old Road

I was only going to walk a short distance but I had to check what was behind the next corner. After a short ways, I spotted an arch because I could see light going through it.

After a mile, I was getting thirsty so I turned around.

Down Canyon

Along the way down, there was a metal pipe sticking out of the ground. I didn’t notice it before because I was looking up at the cliffs.

I spotted an old jar and tried to take some creative pictures.

Old Trash

A quarter mile away from the car, I jumped the deer again and got some pictures. I zoomed in but my camera was focusing on closer trees, so all I got were some blurry pictures.

I will definitely come back and check this canyon out again, hopefully when there is no mud or snow.

    Very cool–I’ve been eyeing that old road ever since I saw it from my “Wedgie” geocache a few years ago. I was also at the very top of that canyon in October while hiking out to the tip of the Wedge, but couldn’t see any remnants of the road near the head of the canyon. One of these days I’ll make the time to hike to the end of the canyon along the road. If you want company when you go, let me know. Oh yeah, good find on the arch!

    I will definitely let you know when I plan on hiking this next time. If it ever quites storming long enough for the desert to dry.
