    Default Gold Bar Mine

    This is my first relevant post on this site even though I have been lurking for several months. I promised Joezona a few photos of a trip I took a couple weeks ago so here they are Joe. I am not real great at narratives and trip recaps so I will let the photos speak for themselves.
    I am pretty much learning as I go about the history on some of these old mining areas here in Arizona. Most of you have a much greater head start but that's ok, I will make up for it with persistence.
    Here are some photos of all sorts of things that caught my eye while hiking around.

    I took about a thousand photos that day so this is just a brief recap of the highlights. Hope you enjoyed it.

    I really like these pic's, but there seems to be , (to me) too much of the spray tan treatment. Don't get me wrong, I really like these pics. But I'd like to see them in a more natural depiction.

    Nice stuff there! Those hdr's are fabulous! You've got a couple of hangars there, for sure.

    Go out there in the summer...the Gila monsters and rattlers are at their finest, very plentiful and picturesque.

    And take plenty of drinks LOL it's HOT!
