Yesterday I had the pleasure of leading The West Phoenix 4x4 Meetup peeps on the Ajax Mine Trail and Telegraph Line Road from Florence Junction to Superior. They were a fun group of 10 rigs, plus 2 members from here, Camprats Steve and JeepUniq Dan, came to help George and I keep the group together. We allowed a little time for the west siders to try one of the little rock-crawl sections in Ajax Wash, which they really seemed to like. We ate lunch at the Ajax Mine. We stopped at the obsidian field near Superior to see if we could find any Apache Tears; we didn't. The weather was perfect yesterday, just a little cloud cover to keep it from being too hot.

We stopped to check out a fence with gate across a lower section of Ajax Wash:

It's funny, this guy David is a friend of mine on Facebook, but I didn't realize it was him until he posted pictures last night from this outing!

The desert was super lush after all the rain we've been getting
We aired up across the street from the cemetery in Superior, just as a funeral procession was passing by. The hearse was a tractor pulling a covered wagon trailer.
