Those look neat, and sounds like quite an adventure to get there.  Did you get permission from the property owner to be there?  I read that it is on 189 acres of private property.  I know you wouldn't trespass.  whistling  Apparently it has been posted but people keep removing the signs and some think they have to take pieces home with them or vandalize it in some way.  Idiots like that ruin it for everyone.  Hope you guys had a good time on your adventure.

Whipper says 24 miles in and out. not too bad. lots of ledges and steps. its been 12 to 15 years since we have been their.  the COKE OVENS were used to burn mesquite wood to a coke for the processing of gold and silver.
