Last Chance Mine Peak & Bland Hill
October 8, 2022


Peak 3937 - Last Chance Mine Peak

The summit from where the road crasts

Now much closer

Now the summit is mere feet away

Looking south

Now looking north

A look down from whence I came. My car is the shiny speck seen near the bend in the road

Bland Hill as viewed from where I started walking, and saguaro

Now seen about halfway up, the jeep track can barely be seen on its side

As I near the top ridge, the two summit points are now visible

A view of the north summit point from the south one

View slightly left, Peak 3937 is seen slightly left of center, in shadow

The southern summit point as seen from the northern one

The height-of-light pole on the north summit

Mine tailings from the old Bland Mine

Looking down into the shaft near the tailings. That is the hole of death if you ask me.

I return to my car, with the village of Bumble Bee behind. The Sunset Point rest stop on Interstate-17 lies atop the plateau with the towers, at the left side of the image
