    It's not the valley that is green, it is the color of the rocks. The copper ore rocks

    Isolated spots indeed but not the "valley" It's about copper man.

    If there was any copper around it would be the Verde Pit Mine not the Verde Vallley.......................lol. No decent foreign mining corp. worth it's salt would leave copper ore just laying around on the surface.

    Have you ever been thru the Jerome State Park? Fascinating, there are more miles of tunnels in those hills than are in the San Juans.

    The pit mine is an afterthought, and maybe not even a copper mine.

    the pit mine was started because of a fire underground that burned for several years, shutting down most operations. it started the planning for the smelter move and the creation of clarkdale

    Hey guys, been riding for about 4 years. Had a Honda CB500X for 4 years, mostly empty highways, back roads and some fire trails.
    Sold it this spring and just picked up a Yamaha XT225. Up in Flagstaff and looking for folks to ride with.
    I got a card from Coconino Trail Riders from a dealership event a while back so I figure I will look them up too.
