Oatman Massacre Site / Painted Rock

Trail Rating: 2.0

Got to take a nice run today with Tom Fooshee, Big Dave, and myself...ran out Agua Caliente road to the Union Pacific service road....took that out to the site of the Gilespie/Arlington (Sunset Limited..?) de-railment from 1994 ish...got a great lesson on railway information, and that line.

Then off to the Oatman Massacre site and exploring that area and the Mormon Battalion trail...around Painted Rock and the Indian Petroglyphs...and out the Gila Bend...had a great time, and alot of fun...

Wanted to thank Dave and Tom...here are some pics
