I stop at this small side wash and get out my map and compass to see if this might be the old road to Tough Nut Mine: wrong!
I know the old road is probably so eroded that it won't be recognizable as a road.
Things aren't adding up... After a few minutes, I realize that I need to be in the next big wash south, not this one.
Therefore, this side wash is definitely not the road to Tough Nut Mine!
I use this small side wash as a route over the hill to reach the next wash, where I'm supposed to be.
