Default April 2019 Lake Pleasant to Tip Top
Saturday was a great day of exploring. Theksmith led us on several trails from the Lake Pleasant area to the Tip Top Mining district with a really cool side trip to an old homestead, and then out through Table Mesa.

All my pictures are here: >>>>>Diane's Pics<<<<<<<

The views of pleasant were beautiful



Went up a sweet canyon to the homestead

















Then we took a new route K found that goes toward Tip Top





Our Jeeps; theksmith's Gadget, gearhead's old reliable YJ, and my Clifford



Met up with some horses near a working ranch, and had to turn around to find a different route



We found a different route to the Tip Top road, but then we came to a locked gate (anyone sensing a theme here?). Luckily, it was adjacent to a wash so we were able to take a detour rather than go all the way back out to the lake.



It was a fun day checking it out. Thanks for leading K!

long day but we all made it out alive

it was fun to wheel with a small group and i'm glad we got to see some new stuff even if we didn't make it to all our planned destinations.

thanks for posting the trip report D!
