    Default Hassayampa and Box Canyon (near Wickenburg, AZ)

    In 2011, my family and I spent an awesome day driving up Hassayampa and Box Canyon near Wickenburg, AZ. This is a fun and easy 4wd adventure. For those interested, you can see my write up at : http://www.experience-az.com/adventu...assayampa.html

    There are a bunch of mines in the area and some stone ruins. I was wondering if any of you knew the history of the canyon or the stone ruins?

    Here are a few pictures from the trip.

    The stone ruins. Miner's shack? Rancher's line shack?

    Great stuff. That stone ruin was probably an early 7-11.

    I'm glad somebody is still questing into the primitive outlands. Thanks for posting.

    We did that run also. It's a shame that almost everything in Octave and Weaver is now closed off. The ruins are very small and can easily be missed. And, Vulture, based on the amount of Thirst Buster cups around, I'm betting it was a Circle K, not 7-11 :-)
