    I didn't think so. No water there for a smelter and the mines would be full of diamondbacks who would make short work a meth-head.

    When I came up Bull Springs Road from SR 82 they use to have that BP Checkpoint there. Look for the Port-a-johns on the northside. It was a nicely graded dirt road right until the National Forest Sign and then all **** broke out on the road! Loads of history up there. If you've ever looked hard at a topo, there are more mines that you can count and everyone of them went belly up!

    I think Vulture once posted some pictures of a whole lot of activity just to the east of Alto on the hillside.

    Vulture, was that your scans of that?

    The only Alto ruin, Grosvenor hills & the San Cayetano mts.

    Norman, Thanks for posting the road conditions.
