    Default Bathtub Tank, Hog and Adobe Canyon

    Here's an easy 4WD adventure for those of us in southern Arizona. This trip (mostly high clearance 2WD) winds its way across the grasslands and valleys near Sonoita. You will pass a few old mines, corrals and interesting rock features as you make your way to Bathtub Tank. This is a fairly unique dam/tank built into a narrow canyon. Rumor has it that a long time ago miners/ranchers put in an old cast iron tub at the top of the dam with a ladder to access it. Although the ladder was there, I did not find the tub, but I could have easily missed it. Anyone know any more info about this place? Very beautiful.

    More info and details on the trip can be found here: http://www.experience-az.com/adventu...thtubtank.html

    That mossy wet dam looks cooling, thinking about the 109's right around the corner. I found a concrete dam on Harshaw creek in the Patagonias much like this one. Some of those ranchers put a lot of work into water harvesting. Course there were no regulations then.
