Jeepin’ to McCracken Mine, AZ
We’ll be hitting the road soon for Texas, but before we leave Arizona I wanted to get in at least one desert Jeep trip.
So on Valentine’s Day myself and three others drove our two Jeeps to McCracken Mine. We left the campground at 9 am and returned in the afternoon at about 4 pm.
Most of the ride was on Alamo Road, a desert freeway, complete with street signs and mile markers:
The trip was dusty as hell, but the desert was very green and close to blooming.

Nice trip Tom. Did you get to the mine part? I read in the link to the McCracken mine that in the 1870’s it coughed up 1.5 million in silver.
Did you run into any rattlers while you were out there?
