Ajax Mine

Dick (a/k/a "Little Richard") led the group on a scenic ride to the Ajax mine.  I used my smartphone to track the trip but the battery died at the mine so you will see only the portion of the ride from west of Superior to the mine.  The EveryTrail link is http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=1468170.

Cold, early morning start

Extreme Rock Crawling

The W.E. Rock Western Pro Series Round 1 rock crawling event is being held this week-end at the Thunder Rock Off Road Ranch north of Congress, AZ.  It was my first experience watching the pros and they were impressive!  These are definitely not your father's rock crawlers...

The campground had a Happy Hour with live music by the pool this afternoon and Gary, one of the guys I ride with, was playing in the band.

Booty Hill & Martinez Mines

Another beautiful day ATVing in the desert.  I am getting use to waking up in the morning and just assuming it will be warm and sunny.  Arizona has almost as many mines as Washington has lawyers.  Video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSnW7-BBNFI.  EveryTrail link at http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=1438353.
