Ryal Canyon

Camp Verde, AZ

May 31, 2010

 

From the Oasis Road locality, we drove back down the dirt road to the intersection of Oasis Road and Salt Mine Road. We went south on Salt Mine Road about 3 miles to a turn-off on our right. Here we parked and followed a dry streambed about a quarter mile, where we started looking for pseudomorphs of gypsum after glauberite. The GPS coordinates where we parked are 34 degrees 31’ 43.4” N, -111 degrees 52’ 05.4”W.

 

 

We didn’t find much of interest here. On reviewing the directions, I suspect we may have gone the wrong way on the streambed from where we parked.
