Wickenburg Massacre, Wickenburg, Arizonia

35 miles, 9 gates and many turns, we made it to the Wickenburg Massacre which happened on Nov. 5, 1871 at 10AM.  There a 3 different accounts of the event:
The terrain is flat and easy trails to the site. Once you arrive at the site, you you will find a small hill running along the old stagecoach line going to Ehrenburg.  You will find markers and rock graves indicating where the unfortunate folks lost their lives. The markers explain the story and peoples names.
After we left the site, we headed towards Sols Wash, which intersects with Vulture Mine Rd. Which intersects with highway 60, where you will find a Dairy Queen! Then we headed north back to North Ranch RV Park, Congress, Az We left at 8:30 am and arrived home at 2:30pm, which includes, breaks, lunch time and ice cream treats at Dairy Queen.
