Default 2/17/18: Sunflower Mine Bridge Recon & Picnic, Sunflower, AZ, 4x4 Easy to Moderate
Sorry for the short notice! We're going to go see what's up with the bridge on the Sunflower Mine Loop. Signs have been installed saying the bridge is out, but a friend told us you can bypass it. So we're just going to drive down to the bridge, check it out, have a picnic lunch, and return the same way we went in. The trail is rated a strong moderate with some possible difficult (we haven't been there in a while, you know how mother nature can change things up!).

I would love to join you guys, but I don't know if Ruby will be ready by then. All her interior is striped out, including all the seats.

I'll update you if anything changes.
