Sunday March 4, 2018 Queen’s Canyon Kofa Arizona
Kofa Wildlife Refuge Arizona
Queen’s Canyon road
I was going to Palm Canyon to camp, but when I got to the Queen’s Canyon road, I decided to turn left onto it instead. Marty recommended I camp on this road so I thought I’d give it a try. I was planning to do it later anyway.
I let two guys in a truck get past me as they were moving along fairly fast as if they’d been on the road before. I’ll catch up with them later as it turns out.
If the floor was leveled it would make a good camp site.
Spot the big huge rock
On the way walking up to the rock, I spotted this little critter, the only thing I saw today here. It didn’t move while I moved around it taking pics. Things that move likely get eaten around here as there isn’t much around.
From what I’ve seen in the past most people that go to this skull rock miss this huge rock just above the skull as I don’t remember seeing any pictures of it before.
Was going to camp
I rested up when I got back to the van and after awhile I decided to continue on up this road as it ends not too far ahead.
Indian Canyon camp spot
On the way up I’d passed by this canyon which I think is Summit canyon. I’m pretty sure the peak there is Ten Ewe Mountain and I noticed there is a trail going up that way, so I stopped here on the way down and found a camp spot.
Catching up with that truck
Earlier I saw the truck that I let by me on my way in parked at the trail head at Summit Canyon which was right by where I was camped so I was waiting for them to come back from their hike up the canyon so I could quiz them on what’s up that way.
Just after five I heard the truck start so I went out on the road and waited for them to come by.
I flagged them down and we talked about what’s up the canyon which I learned from them and I told them about a couple other places where there is nice hiking in the Kofa.
Only me here
Once they left it’s only me here which is very quiet with lots of stars. The temperature is dropping some, it’s about fifty degrees F. out right now at 8PM. The days have been pleasant, not too hot.
So anyway I’m planning to hike up Summit Canyon tomorrow so I better rest up as it looks like a bit of a steep hike.
That was my day.
