Peters Mesa Pack Trip After 2008 Rendezvous

I have been working with OK Corral in Apache Junction to pre-plan a 4-day/3-night pack trip to Peters Mesa on the Monday following the 2008 Lost Dutchman Rendezvous. I am now contacting some of the LDM Forum members to see who might be interested in going. While on Peters Mesa, one day can be used t...

Jal Terrain

Joe, we are in general agreement on the distance to mountainous terrain from Jal. The 6034 ft peak you reference is WNW of Jal on the West side of Carlsbad, NM.

Map Showing NM and TX Mountains

Here's a weather radar map that has a topo relief view of NE New Mexico and Texas. Jal is located at the SE corner of NM and you can get a feel for how far it is from there to any mountains of any substance.

Garry, Think you are correct in the date error in Magill's letter dated Oct 27, 1965. Here's another tread in your Magill info that is even more interesting: In his letter to Mr. & Mrs. Clarence Mitchell (aka Travis Marlowe) dated Feb 12, 1970, Glenn writes: "However, I also believe from my...

Glen Magill Letters

Garry, Thanks for putting the Glenn Magill letters up on the web for others to be able to read.

I might offer another explaination of Waltz having water runoff problems. If there was a "Cave" between the peaks that one had to go down to and then through to get to a lower ledge where the pit mine(s) were located, then Waltz might have been referring to him being in this cave when it r...

Dad's Passing

Thanks to everyone on the kind thoughts and well wishes. I suspect many of us are getting to an age that this is a more common happening with parents and relatives.

We should celebrate the life and not the passing of a loved one.
