    so i made a last minute decision to go on a day trip in the Bradshaw Mtns. This area was very active with mining, mostly gold and silver from the early 1860's through the 1930's, there where even holdouts working some mines into the 1970's. I have been wanting to do this run for a while, the last time i was through this section was early 90's.
    I came in from the west side of the Mtns on the original road the miners used.

    Going over walnut creek
