Description

As part of our 2010 Three Flags Classic Tour motorcycle ride from Canada to Mexico, stopping at the south end of Highway 191, the Coronado Trail, or Devil's Highway 666, in Arizona, I took a zoomed in view of the open pit copper mine. Panoramic made with Microsoft Image Composite Editor; photos taken with beat up Canon SD790is.

from Wikipedia: "The biggest employer in Morenci (and in nearby Clifton) is Freeport-McMoRan, the owner of the Morenci Mine, the largest copper mining operation in North America, and one of the largest copper mines in the world."
