Silver City, NM, Day 3 Hike #2

Day 3 in Silver City hike #2. While some did other things, 5 of us explored the ‘historic ditch’ in town created late 1800 by a 12′ foot high flash flood wall of water that literally split the town in half down to the bedrock. It is now a park area & the blooming tress & shrubs were beautiful.


Were told of a unique trail on the South end of town littered with old cars & parts from the 1930s with trees growing up thru them. Either washed there from the old junkyard, or put there to prevent serious erosion.

Was a pleasant 2 mile hike in & out & had one more water crossing. But in this case, we made our own rock bridge! Just can’t stop us hikers! Even came across the trunk of the largest Cottonwood we have seen. We had a great time exploring that unusual area.
