In the Beginning...

I rolled out of the driveway at 5:30 Saturday morning. After nearly an hour on the slab the sun starts to rise.




East of Phoenix I turn off the US60 onto Queen Valley Road.


3 miles later I turn onto the graded dirt Hewitt Station Road.


After turning onto Hewitt Canyon Road (FR172) I'm immediately greeted by a water crossing at Queen Creek.


Hmmmmm....
This looks ominous.


This is my largest water crossing yet. The sand was very soft and I should've carried a little more speed. I dug a trench with the rear tire up to the axle while inching across... just barely.



I'm greeted on the other side by increasingly better scenery.








I found a spot to stop for breakfast and pull out the DSLR.




I was hoping to get out here early for a beautiful sunrise. Not only was I a little late, but it was rather cloudy.
