Cancelled - Calico Mother's Day Trail Run (sorry, no blues)

May 8th 2022


Not enough interest - let's try again in the fall.

This will be a relatively easy run that most stock 4x4 should be able to do. Sorry, but there is not a Blues Festival this year (nor since Covid). Considering it’s Mother’s Day, the idea is to maybe introduce your wife/mother/significant other to one of our outings. If there’s enough interest, we can go do the Calico Ghost Town. $8.00/person. Spend a little time in there before we do the trail.Plan on stopping at Bismarck Mines for lunch. Great place to lurk around a wee bit before/after lunch before moving on.
