Moore's Flat, Spanish Mine and Ancho Erie Mine

Sep 5, 2022

Update from Martin (9/4):

The Moore’s Flat/Cemetary, Spanish Mine Ancho Erie Mine on Monday will be hot.  If all goes well we can lunch along Poorman’s creek where it should be shady and cooler.

Please be sure to bring plenty of water, lunch for youself and maybe a chair.

Signups so far:

Brian (maybe)
Gil and Anita (maybe)
Julie (Guest)

This is a Labor Day run.

Start Time: 0830

Location: Depart from Wendy’s lot in Brunswick Basin

From Wendy's we will head out to Moore's Flat.  Moore’s Flat is an hydraulic mining area. William Lewis Manly was one of the founders following his “Escape from Death Valley” in 1849. 

The road to the cemetery probably has trees with branches hanging down to brush the vehicles and the route out may be too brushy and cause us to back track a bit.

From Moore’s flat we will continue past Bucks Ranch back out to the Graniteville Rd, then to Spanish Mine.  Good view to the south. 

Dropping down toward Poorman Creek, we make a left turn at the lower Spanish Mine site toward Ancho Erie Mine.

And finally out to Little Town of Washington. 

Should be a good day of wandering.  Most of this should be lightly traveled even on Labor day.

Bring Lunch, water, etc for the day.

Please let Martin know if you plan to attend.
