A fellow Ghost Town explorer from Tucson drove up and went with us to make another attempt to reach the still elusive Blue Bird Mine. We got within sight of it, even explored one of the adits, but to reach the actual mining area where the buildings are located it'll take a pretty good hike up a dry river wash to get there. We decided to wait until the temps turned cold and Rattle Snakes were all bedded down for the winter before hiking the wash. Now that it's within sight, it's even more tantalizing than before because we know there's going to be a lot to explore.
