    Default A Few Ruins Along The San Pedro

    Was out last Saturday along the San Pedro River again. Found nothing really new, but a few misc. relics.


    An old bridge with some decent workmanship.


    Following the illegals up the river.

    Their footprint.

    My bootprint. I figured that they were an hour ahead of me.

    Relic swept into the wash. Still trying to figure from where.



    Old water gauge. This was listed on my topo despite being over a cattle tank.

    Someone was marking the trail. This is BLM land. No hunting allowed. Probably illegals.

    Up by Curtis Flat Road. My turn around point.

    Old relics along the washes. Flood control or am I totally off base here?

    I'm going to try again in this area in December when the brush has died down. I don't have a machete or chainsaw. It's hard to see old foundations and trash through the brush as it is now.
    There is an area that is posted "NO COLLECTING" by Contention City that I haven't seen before. I figured that the BLM would not put up such a sign unless there was a reason way out there. Might be a good start.
    There's a lot of history out there. It just needs to be reclaimed.
