Default South of Tucson near the Border Saturday 2/3/18
***CANCELLED***

Join us for a day run from Rio Rico to Patagonia this Saturday, 2/3/18. Steep hill climb to the 4 Metals Mine, over the top to the Mowry Mine, then explore the Harshaw Cemetery on the way to Patagonia. If enough interest we can make a quick stop at the border where the old railroad rail fence meets the new. Last stop will be in Patagonia by 5:00 where you can find a place to eat dinner or head home. From Patagonia it's about 60 miles via 82 & 83 to the intersection of I10 & I19 in South Tucson.

No serious challenges on this run but the road running up to the 4 Metals Mine is loose gravel and steep. Suitable for mildly modified vehicles with good clearance and at least 1 locker. Stock Rubicons OK. Pack a lunch and plenty to drink. All attendees must sign a waiver that I will provide. Ladies are cordially invited.

This sounds like a fun ride. I've been looking at exploring down that way and have thought about camping in Organ Pipe Cactus Park for a night or two. If you reschedule, I'd be interested in tagging along.
