All well within the "50 miles" all accessable offroad, with various classes of trails...














I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

I've often wondered that myself.... It was that way when I got it... Been sorta looking around for another one, but cj and wrangler parts are like golden titanium around here....

Of course I could just say that it adds character...

Pretty old as I haven't been out locally in awhile. About 15 mins from where I live.

Great pics!! there are so many interesting places to go in our state! I really like history and seeing places that people in the past have gone, set up camp, mining etc. One of the things that amazes me is how people 100+ years ago managed to move such heavy equipment up hills and mountains for mining. My house is 15 feet from the old Arizona - New Mexico Rail Road that runs from Fairbank, Az to Nogales. Fairbank is where the side line to Tombstone was built, and is also about a mile or so south of Contention City which is where the Movie "3:10 to Yuma" is based on. Also on our property is an old one room stone cabin. From what I have learned, The Earps chased Curly Bill and his freinds right through our area.. I have traveled along the rail road bed, and found alot of interesting tressels, spikes, timbers and such, as well as pieces of old machinery, just laying out in the desert. Here are a few pics. Again, Sorry I can't resize them... There are a couple of the old rail bed, some from Coronado National Memorial where my Dad lives (His house is inside the park), one in the river that runs by my front porch, and an old wooden storage shed on our property about 50 feet from thel little stone cabin.....

Yep, this state is so rich with history. One of the reasons I picked up a jeep in the first place. Old mining towns are the best!!

Yep I love the history around me.... This is the entrance to Accidental Mine, Most of the time i go and explore them but this one had about 10" of water in it. Haven't had a chance to go back to that one

I love that pic of the tracks. Can you imaginge what the rest of the tracks must have looked like back in the day, and how high that tressel must have been? I had pics of the reef mine site up on Carr Peak, but don't have them any more.. But they did all the extracting at the top of the cliffs. Somewhere around here, there is a mine that has an old model t or model a in a shed that had the back wheels off and a belt around old rims that drove an elevator.... I don't know where it is, a freind of mine was telling me about it.

This is my front yard, The river comes up to within 3 feet of my porch during the monsoons:

Thanks.
