Canyon Rim

​GET 2017 Day 8, March 25, Saturday.

Start town of Mammoth on Aravaipa bypass route segment 6 alt mile 9.5

End at rim of Turkey Creek Canyon, near segment 6 alt mile 30.

Cowboy Miller Road heads east several miles toward a tall mountain ridge. Looking back at Mammoth…

Here are the mountains getting closer.

Heading towards low spot on mountain

Cross-country up arroyo with rock scramble.

Little Table Mountain ahead

Tough jeep road terrain

Cool mining ruins

Nearing rim of deep canyon at sunset, several memorable rock formations


I find a little ledge protected from the wind just down from Turkey Creek Canyon rim, and set up camp with inspiring views.
