Saturday, February 8th. Black Mountain and Coolgardie LUA
« on: February 05, 2020, 08:59:29 AM »
This run is predicated on good weather.  At the moment, wind is forecast at 20-30mph.  Watch the forecast and this page.  If forecast wind speeds increase I will cancel.  I don't need another sandblasted vehicle.  If we have to cancel, we may pick another trail but can't guarantee it.

This will be an easy scenic / historic run.  Rating 1-2.  Limited use of 4-Wheel drive may be required due to soft sand in some areas. 

We will explore the fringes of the Black Mountain Wilderness area including visits to Inscription Canyon and Black Canyon.  Wear good shoes since there will be some walking / rock climbing to see some of the petroglyphs along the way.  We will also be stopping at other historic sites along the old stagecoach line and be visiting the site of the old opal mine.

In the Coolgardie limited use area we plan to visit Tonka Town and the NASA F104 crash site.  The views are great, history interesting and you will get to spend the day with wonderful people  ;D.

Bring a lunch, plenty of water and your camera.  We will meet at Peggy Sue's 50's Diner in Yermo at 8:00am for breakfast.  The run will depart at 9:00.  Please post up if you are interested in this run.

I would love to join you. This would be my first time off roading. If that is ok with the group. Sounds like a good place to start and get the grandkids out of the house and off the tablets. Let me know.
