Hole In The Floor, Kingman, AZ


 

In march 2017, we went with Wayne & Gwen, Ric, Paul, Russ & Cathy and George & Diane on a trail, which allowed us to cross the Cerbat Mountains. We started pretty close to Kingman, AZ. A part of the trail is a shelf road, which not everybody might like. The trail is called Hole In The Floor, because at the end of the shelf road is a mine shaft, which goes straight into the ground. In the oldern days it might have happened, that people drove into that hole.

We had a short stop at the mine. What a view from here.

After the mine we faced a pretty bad climb...

Me going up. Because of my wider wheel stance, it was slightly easier for me.

This picture shows very well, how deep the ruts had been...
Russ did a great job, going up that hill. Here is also a video: https://www.facebook.com/offroaddance/videos/310822072667679/
After that section, the trail got again easier.
