Camera 11/24/2018 Zimmerman Point Asbestos Mine
yesterday we ran NF-489 off Hwy 288. this takes you up to an old Asbestos Mine near Zimmerman Point.

the trail was incredibly scenic and just the right challenge for rigs with 33" to 35" tires and a mild lift. 5 rigs was a prefect group size as well - overall a really fun day with great people!

I took a few pictures, I'll post some and you can check out all of them here if you want: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1Q...k4akFpVUlXbUlB

The first 'sketchy' spot:



As usual, it looks like nothing in pictures, but it was off-camber next to a wash:









My fave from the day:



It was such a pretty area!
