There have been several comments on my article about Bradshaw’s Grave and there seems to be an interest in visiting the site. I would be happy to lead a group out to the grave and share the history of the area that we pass through. We will visit several abandoned mines. We will pass by the ghost town of Swallow; we will also go by the sight of the former Whipsaw Nudist Colony (which was established by Hippies in the 1960’s). We will be close to the site of the Wickenburg version of the Hatfield and McCoy feud. We will stop at an Indian camp, which contains artifacts of their presence. I think many if you would find this trip interesting.
I have scheduled the trip for Saturday, December 9, 2006. If there is any interest, I will post the details later.
You would need an all terrain vehicle or a four wheel drive, high clearance vehicle to go on the ride. The terrain we will go over is not dangerous, just very rough. A two wheel vehicle would have a tough time traversing the trails.
A camera would be a must.
I look forward to you joining me on this ride to relive a part of the past so that it might be carried on for future generations.
Please post in the Comments if you are interested in participating.
November 27 Update: Tom Riggs will be joining us on the 12/9 ride. He has forgotten more of the history of the area than I will ever know. Start time will be 10:00 AM from the rodeo grounds. With Tom along, the ride that will be absolutely fascinating!
