went out today to scope out sandman.
it'll be perfect. here's a few shots: Sandman Trail Photos
so, the plan:
on jan 29,
meetup at 8a at the minit market (intersection: oracle/golder ranch)
head out as a group to florence
top off fuel as necessary
route i plan is:
price road to box canyon
through box canyon to sandman and drive the northern loop
come back out via box canyon to price road
there's a nice lil cave near the middle point of the trail, a great place to set up for lunch and let the kids play for those bringing them along.
