2/7/2021 Show Low Bluff Trail RA, AZ - Not many people know this RA site even locals. I thought I can find it, if look around, but didn’t find it yesterday. I’ve checked the Internet and got some tips and lucky enough to find it today.

2/8/2021 Fivemile Draw RA, north of Snowflake, AZ - At the intersection of the Fivemile Draw and Silver Creek, there is a trail to hike down to the bottom of the draw. Around this intersection, there are many petroglyphs, a sad thing is there are many graffiti too.

2/8/2021 Silver Creek Rim Hike, north of Snowflake, AZ - I have hiked on the south rim of the Silver Creek from the Fivemile Draw to south, to see the south faced north walls. There are many petroglyphs on the south rim on the ground, and in the north walls of the creek.

2/9/2021 Silver Creek RA, north of Snowflake, AZ - From yesterday’s observation from atop of the rim, there are many petroglyphs in the bottom of the creek, so that decided to hike from the Fivemile Draw to Fourmile Draw. The Silver Creek is about 30 miles long and only two or three places to reach to the bottom of the creek bed safely. I was expected to hike up on the Fourmile Draw, but there are steep dry waterfalls to prevent to hike up.

2/10/2021 Sevenmile Draw, north of Snowflake, AZ - I was expected to see the multi-colored pictographs, unfortunately I couldn’t go through the large and deep water deposit that about 20ft below the dry waterfalls, where I was standing above. However I found some petroglyphs on the draw that cheered me up.

2/11/2021 Tenmile Draw, north of Snowflake, AZ - My GPS showed only three areas to access to the bottom of the Silver Creek. Yesterday I went one of them, GPS didn’t tell me that in the private property. Lucky me that the land owner was very nice, instead of prosecute me, he told me where to go to see the petroglyphs. This Tenmile Draw was one of the places he mentioned, and he was right, there are many petroglyphs.

2/12/2021 Canoncito, Silver Cree, AZ - There is no sign or mark, but a trail to get down to the bottom of the Silver Creek from the mesa top. I found the petroglyphs that the exact location of the land owner mentioned me. A sad thing was, many graffiti around the RAs.

2/13/2021 Silver Creek, AZ - Hike in the bottom of the creek from the Canoncito to the Tenmile Draw was my original plane. But heavy dark cloud scare me to turn back at the about half way. The both sides of creek walls are beautiful, about 100ft or more high up, but not much RA in this segment.

2/13/2021 Woodruff Dam, AZ - Silver Creek was all dried up, but water is running this man-made dam area, I was wondering where getting those water? This area is an intersection of the Little Colorado River and Silver Creek, I am sure there are RAs, but I couldn’t find it today.

2/23/2021 Arrastra Creek Corral, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - The massive stone walls of the corrals are visible from the Google Map. It is a pronghorn capture corral. There is a natural water pool just above the waterfalls, currently waterfalls are dry but water is in the pool, after drink water, pronghorns walk up to the corral that the way I can see it in this place.

2/23/2021 Arrastra Creek RA, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - Some petroglyphs are smoke damaged by wild fire. There are some petroglyphs west and south sides of the corrals. Also, nice petroglyphs other side of the waterfalls, I don’t know how to get there, steep and not easy to stand there. There are many metates, least 20 of, I never see this many in one area.

2/24/2021 Lost Jupiter RA, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - This is the mouth of the Bishop Creek or Baby Canyon. I have been here before couple times, I never know RAs are here. South side of the canyon, little higher level, many petroglyphs are faded out but some of are still visible.

2/25/2021 Lousy Canyon Ruin, Agua Fria National Monument, AZ - I didn’t have an information of the exact location of the RAs and Ruins, lucky enough to find the large size ruins, which located higher side of the mesa. But not lucky enough to find the RAs. It is beautiful canyon, and road is a rough to get here.

2/26/2021 Rosalie Pueblos, Tonto National Forest, AZ - Two separate ruin locations in this area, and dirt road to get it. One ruin is located higher side of the mountain slope and another one is much lower area. Near by ruins, a rock stack wall about 50ft long and 4 or 5ft height that I believe it for the hunting purpose.
