Mike, Bob, Bill, Janet, Nancy, Linda, Heather, Heather, and I hiked nearly eleven miles starting from the parking lot for the Dixie Mine Trail. We hiked: Dixie Mine, Coachwhip, Windmill, Bell Pass, Prospector, service road, Dixie Mine. Near the end of Prospector, Bill, Linda, the two Heathers, and I split off and hiked the canyon which led back to the petroglyphs and the mine.
