July 21, 2011Went home for lunch and whipped out a little illio on arrastras. This is for a Cave Creek documentary coming out this fall.
Arrastras were used in mining, utilizing a pit with ore placed inside and boulders on top that would be drug around in a circle to crush the ore.
"A miner is a cowboy with his brains bashed out."
