More Day 3
Day 3 cont'd
On to Viewpoint 6!
I rode a ways around the corner for a different perspective…
Zoomed out (look in upper left hand corner)
Roger snapped my approach in his rear view mirror…..cool shot….
Then I swung around him on the way over to Viewpoint 7
View Point 7…….our final viewpoint on the Navajo lands
Roger’s Black Beast at Waypoint 7
Chris taking in the sights……sensory overload on this particular day
Both bikes on a bluff near Viewpoint 7
Time to haul ass back towards civilization/Hwy 89
Came across some wild(?) horses
Wow, that was a long/dry/remote/beautiful stretch………we dropped down to Cameron on 89, fueled up, and headed down to the Gray Mtn Truck Trail to lead us into the South Rim…..a few pics along Gray Mtn Truck Trail….
Once down to Hwy 64 we started down dirt trail and came upon a Navajo wedding
So we diverted over to another trail that turned rocky for a bit before dying out on a bluff
It was getting late….we’d already had a big day……so we just hung a U-Turn and headed back up hill to the main trail/Hwy 64……..I lost my rear footing in one section and spun out……didn’t fall but was forced to dismount to lift the rear end around…….Roger whipped out the camera before I could get restarted
Once we got back to 64 we raced up to Desert View to get gas for Roger…….then we pulled over at a few viewpoints on the way into the Village and he snapped a few pics of the South Rim/clouds as the sun was setting…..
The clouds put on a quite a show as well….
By the time we pulled into Yavapai Lodge the sun had set…….we rode around for a bit trying to find some friends of mine that were hiking in the Canyon on Sat as I thought they might be at the Bright Angel Trail head……..we couldn’t find’em so we checked in, ate, and passed out…….long day……fun day…..
