Last minute general call to all JK's:
We are doing our Annual Mingus Mountain Fall Color Run...
When: Sunday, October 24, 2010
Where: Meet at 9:00 AM at Cottonwood Super Walmart parking lot, depart at 9:15, air down at trailhead. Gas and snack up before meet. http://maps.google.com/maps?um=1&ie=...ed=0CBgQnwIwAA
Who: You, and any of your buddies you deem to be of worthy Jeepness. As always, please let me know if you are going to try to make it so we will look for you.
What: Mingus Mountain trail is mostly easy with one Jeepy spot that challenges stock Jeeps or novice drivers. About 3-4 hours from Cottonwood, up the mountain, with stops, and back down to Jerome. Plan would be to snack on the trail, then any interested participants can stop for lunch in Jerome. We climb over 4000 feet in elevation up the face of Mingus Mtn, so the views are spectacular, and it can be cool up top.
Why: Fall color should be in full swing by that date! Red maples and golden cottonwoods.
Bring: Yourself, your worthy Jeep (4L and 30" tires recommended, usable spare tire), water, snacks, camera, layers of clothes--it may be 85 degrees in the valley and 55 degrees up top. I will be using Motorola FRS channel 4/10 on the trail--nice if you have one, though not required.
Please don't hesitate to contact me via phone/text/email with questions! Map & photos available at http://www.jeeptrailinfo.com/trails_arizona/mingus.html
