    How a Mine Was Found

    The view of Weavers Needle is curious which is why I asked in another thread if that mountain were visible from North of the Salt River.

    My question: Where can you see Weavers Needle from a canyon surrounded by hundred foot cliffs? North of the Salt River?

    Brayton left no children which makes finding his journals a challenge.

    WN can be seen from a number of places north of the Salt R.
    Some residential properties boast great views of both Four Peaks and Weavers Needle.....eg.

    Very interesting. Suspiciously similar to the Doc Thorne story. Could this be the real Doc Thorne?

    It seems that some are able to view the attachments and some not. If anyone has an idea of what I am doing wrong please post your thoughts or suggestions. Thank you for the kind help.

    But from a canyon with a stream running through it surrounded by hundred foot walls?
    That must be a specific location.

    What an incredible photo somehiker.

    Weavers Needle can be seen from a few places along Blue Tank Canyon on the way to Hells Hip Pocket north of the Salt River. Some of the cliffs of Blue Tank Canyon are well over 500 feet but not sheer straight up and down cliffs. Extremely steep however and impossible to climb out. In rainy season some very nice water holes and several waterfalls from the cliffs above. Apache had a major camp near Blue Tanks in the 1860's - 1870's.

    When Jeff Adams, Tex Barkley, Hosea Cline, Asa Gardner and Gabriel Robles were searching for Adolph Ruth they obtained a map of Ruth's that led them up into Hells Hip Pocket where they believed the mine to be. Adams later wrote a letter to Sen. Carl Hayden saying the trip was two days of extreme hardship in some of the roughest country he had ever seen. They found the cave they were looking for but not the mine.

    Adams was right, getting to Hells Hip Pocket is the hardest task anyone will do in the Superstition's , Mazatzal's. There are some things in Blue Tanks and the Hip Pocket that are preserved so well only because they are so remote. I wouldn't recommend anyone trying to go to the Hip Pocket unless you are an expert hiker.

    I have no idea if this is the canyon in the gold story or not and keep that opinion to myself.

    deducer,

    The surgeon Brayton story is basically the Doc Thorne story with Brayton mistakingly being identified as Thorne.

    Brayton was never a doctor or a surgeon. Thorne was in fact a Dr. surgeon. Someone somehow mistook Brayton and wrote Thorne,s story using his name. Just another example of recorded printed history being wrong.

    Matthew
