We moved our campsite to the south end of the mountains to find new roads and trails. We got out for a motorcycle ride and found a great route into the interior. We finally found the waterhole we had seen from a trail up to a mine site on a geocache search on Jan. 28. A helicopter had flown over us and we got a fuzzy picture of it as it hovered over the water source.
The road took us right to the waterhole, through several dry washes and past at least one mine site.
The road deteriorated but continued past the mine site we had found on Jan. 28. We parked at the bottom of the hill and hiked up, stopping to find a geocache on the way, to the top of the ridge where we looked out on familiar territory.
