I was trying to find a way to cut across and get up on the South mesa. While going in all those slots I looked up and there was a wooden pole up on the ridge. The ridge is a 'V notch" type ridge. Someone took some amount of risk placing it there. Or the ridge at one time was thicker. Heres some pictures. The first 3 are taken from the Lost BM hill. Shows the area.
Closer
And you can see the pole on top and theres a pole on the bottom.

Here's the pictures from the backside
And a close-up of the pole
So what do we have here? The lost Carrizo creek gold mine? Another king tut tomb? Curiosity has the cat. Must go back.

Looks like a claim marker. You see them all over the south west deserts out in the middle of nowhere.

Yes most likely is but I'm hoping for a zip line smile

Not a geologist, but doesn't look like the most promising prospect!

Thanks, Early morning shot. Taken about 1/4 mile out of the swamp from Carrizo Creek . Seen a lot of wildlife in the area which I haven't noticed before. May go tag Leckie early morning, get up on the cliffs southside and wait to see what moves about.

Ah...saw the long shadows, figured maybe the fox was coming out for the evening, that is the only time I have seen them.

Heck, I've only seen 3 of them for all the time I've been out here.

The fox was eyeing something when I interrupted. I took about 20 quick shots and continued my journey.
