Daytrip - Cottonwood Valley Road 4WD Trip

Today Jim Herring and his daughter Christina drove to Cottonwood Valley Road to revisit the Bird Spring Range and the Dawn and Ninetynine mines. We spent the afternoon driving and touring the area. As a result, I updated the following four pages from previous visits.

Daytrip - Sloan Canyon NCA - 05/19/2020 Trip Notes

Today I once again attempted to make the hike to Sloan Canyon with Jim Herring and his daughter Christina. Same as the last time I attempted this hike back on 6 Feb 2020, I was unable to do much more than a mile. Today, due to the COVID-19 the visitor center trailer had been closed and removed from the site. Click here to view the 05/19/2020 update ... Sloan Canyon NCA Hike - 05/19/2020 Trip Hike.

Daytrip - New Page to Update Previous Summary Pages

In an effort to make two older "summary" pages more accurate, I have updated them by creating a new Sloan Canyon NCA Summary Page. In the process, I have also changed other previous Sloan pages referenced inside this summary page to be more accurate. Go to this new "Summary" page ... Sloan Canyon NCA - Summary Page.

Daytrip - Cold Creek

Click to Enlarge
On 05/02/2020 Jim Herring and I decided to visit Cold Spring for a little four wheeling and a picnic. Willow Peak towers behind the mountain village of Cold Creek. We started out by taking Cold Creek Road, then parts of Wheeler Pass Road and eventually Willow Springs Road, driving deeper into the wilderness. Eventually we arrived at a area where we found enough trees where we could have a nice picnic. Click here to view pictures and a description of this trip ... Cold Creek - 05/02/2020 Visit.
