    Thumbs up . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Old Ore Road, BB Park



    Above:
    The Old Ore Road.
    You will note that spiny thorn bush at the end of my feet. Well they are here and there on the trail and they are always aimed at the opening in your helmet. One of the thorn bushes wacked and grabbed my jacket pretty hard.

    Did I mention dust everywhere?

    Old Ore Road
    High Clearance 4 wheel drive recommended
    I've got a story about this trail. I meet this guy and I ask him why he is walking. He explained to me that he bottomed out his Chevy Lumina and cracked open the tranny and lost all his oil. Later on the trail I saw the oil and aluminum drags.

    I got to the other end, and he and his car were at the trading post with the tow truck pulling.

    I told him that his wife is not going to be happy about the car and the 500 buck tow bill. He explained to me no problem with the wife as he has none, but he didn't think the car rental company will be very happy.

    Oh, and about those thorn bushes, that are on every corner. When you are in tow the car follows behind and both side the paint job was keyed near 50 times the full length of the car

    Thumbs up . . . . . . . . .Pack train route from Mexico to Marathon



    Old Ore Road
    26 miles
    Used in the early Twentieth Century to transport ore from Mexican mines to the railroad station at Marathon, the Old Ore Road follows the route used by mule and pack trains over one hundred years ago. The road provides great views of the Chisos Mountains across the Tornillo Creek drainage to the west. The Ernst Tinaja is located about five miles from the south end of the road.

    Passing thru the foothills of the Dead Horse Mountains, the Old Ore Road requires a high-clearance vehicle and four-wheel drive is highly recommended due to rugged terrain.

    Jim - It's nice that Mercury Marine gave you this time off..... And ... How fortunate for you and for us that you are able to go riding ... and then share your ride with us.

    I can't wait to see what's next.

    Sometimes it's the bend in the road that makes life worth the ride.
