Join Volunteer Naturalists Mary Ekelund and Paul Larson on a drive back into mine wash where we will continue on foot for a 4-mile roundtrip hike with ever-changing sights around each bend. We will need to climb a couple of 4-foot dry waterfalls on our way to a spectacular view of Shelter Valley. Bring the usual water, hat, and sturdy footwear. Meet at the intersection with Mine Wash Road, 2.7 miles east of the Tamarisk Grove on Highway 78.
