Expeditioneers led a small group to Asbestos Point today.

The mines are located north of Roosevelt Lake at ~6800' elevation. The asbestos mines were operational from the early 1900's until ~1980.

Everything was going great until this guy got in our way....what to do...


Don't worry...ZZMikey will do a judo chop dance (he learned it from Jeebus).

Only had to leave one behind...


Raymond, looking for that last bit of clearance.


Ross, (Roof Top Tent Guy) trying to convince Don he is a worthy passenger. Wink



Ray makes it through.


Four Peaks from the summit!


Strange asbestos mine creatures...lurking in the shadows!


Kids playing in the machinery.



Patina and bullet holes...





The mines...











Who knew...Don and Ray had the same camo pants!



Fun day with good friends!

-Mark

Looks like a fun day. I don't recall seeing anything announced for it, must have been by special invitation only.

My chain saw has cleared several trails in the Anchas. I have never seen so many fallen trees anywhere else.

Looks like a nice trail run. If I didn't have family visiting, and knew about this, I would have joined you guys. Call me on the secret hotline next time. Wink

Looks like a good day ... but you guys don't return waves from FJs.

At least not the invisible tan one pulling a leetle trailer that passed you west of Superior this afternoon.

I figured that many FJs together had to be from AZFJ. Was there a 4dr Jeep with you guys?

That trail is one more reason I need to buy a chainsaw. That makes 3 so far. Nobody bought me one for Christmas Rolling Eyes , so maybe this spring I'll treat myself to one.

I guess the Jeep I saw was just trying to ruin the all FJ vibe you had going on the 60. Wink

Did this solo back in June and never had I seen so many fallen trees. It's a really interesting little trip.
