I went back this month to the south end of Sycamore Canyon again with a group.

Here's a nice panorama...


And here's the reason for the trip...


It's not on any of the maps. And since it's in really good shape, I'm not saying in an open forum. But if you slow down and know where to look, there's lots of them out there! (Most not in this good of shape though.) You've got to remember that if you take something, it won't be there for the next explorer. And, they're protected by the Antiquities act.

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

Great Pictures!!!
Saturday, my boys and I went out along the gas line road near our place and followed it for about 5 miles.
Lots of little humps in the road that you can jump. This is a little meca for quads and motorcycles as wells as 4x4's.
we took a little side road and found a mini grand canyon that was pretty cool.

Then, Sunday, We went up to Mt Lemmon. My Daughter and her family followed us up.
There was alot of left over snow from a few weeks ago. The Cookie Cabin was closed,
so we ate at the big resturaunt. My daughter and her family headed back down, but my wife and
boys and I stayed a little longer to to take pictures. Just as it got dark, it started snowing heavy enough
that if you used bright lights you couldn't see anything. Unfortunately, my phone couldn't take good pictures
at night.

Went up to Ash Canyon in my wife's Grand Cherokee.
It has stock size Falken Rocky Mountain ATS tires, which did better than I expected in the snow, but not great.
Made it up further than a Hummer H2 with lockers did, but not by much.
Her ZJ doesn't have lockers. Went back up the next day in my YJ, and went up alot further.
THe only thing that had made it up this far was a 4x4 Plaris with some big knobbies on his tires.
I had to take a few runs at the last hill though, but I made it.

We met a man and his grandson who were up there in their Polaris.
The grandson had just gotten a little .22 and his grandfather was teaching him about shooting.
They invited my boys and I to shoot too if we wanted to.
Of course my boys were all for that, and so we stayed up there for an hour or so with them.
After that we went back up the trail where we found the old car a couple of weeks ago.
Turns out it was an Opel (markings on the steering box). Took some pics and headed back down.
I turned up a neat little side canyon that stopped only a few hundred feet in. As we were driving in,
this huge rock that I absolutely did not see reached up to grab my front axle. No damage though.
Then headed back down the main road, and stopped at a rock foundation of some sort that we saw on the way up and had missed before.
Don't know what it was.
