Carrie Nation Trail, Mt. Wrightson Wilderness, Arizona

Took an opportunity to hike a new trail while visiting a bed and breakfast for my Dad’s birthday. This is the lovely Madera Canyon near Tucson in Arizona, and it leads to a trailhead with some good hikes. I chose to check out a mine nearby.

Mt Wrightson is the high point of this range, and I was told the trek to it’s summit is about a 7 hour round trip. A hike for another day!

I knew I was close to the mine when I saw rusty objects. The mine was flooded and there was a creek leaking from it. Bugs were going nuts all over the water so after a couple pics I was outta there!

I got rattled at as I walked by this lil snake.
