Asbestos Mountain

18 February 1967

For this joint trip with the Camera Section, about 35 people met at Pinyon Flats Campground and caravanned to the starting point near Asbestos Springs and the old Asbestos mine. About three cars were lost enroute due to the dusty road, but after a chase were rounded up.

It took a little over two hours for the group to reach the summit. Two peak baggers with a much later start arrived at the summit as the group was having lunch. With peaks on their minds, all were in a hurry to go elsewhere so no time for picture taking. Most folks were back at the cars by 2:00 p.m. A bit of anxiety arose as one very slow hiker required about an hour extra, but finally all were accounted for.
