Solo to the Chiricahuas - Two Up Back to PHX

Memorial Day Weekend - 2010

I took Friday off to make it a nice four days. The mercury is threatening triple digits in the deserts. I decide to avoid the rush north and try to squeeze in one more SE AZ ride.


Queen Creek Tunnel


Popping out of the tunnel I feel a little over-exposed.






I found the old Main Street of Miami, Arizona one block off of the highway.


This looks cool. I park the bike and take a photo walk.


The door to nowhere? Or is it a Suicide Door?










A Company Town


So, I was standing in the street taking photos when I had a funny feeling. I thought, Maybe I should be on the sidewalk. Nah, there's hardly any traffic here...

Suddenly, CRUNCH!!!


I turn to see a traffic collision 1/2 a block away. No one was hurt. Both drivers hop out, shake hands, and the cops are there in two minutes. I didn't witness it, so I didn't stick around.




Back on the bike I take the business loop through the historic downtown of Globe.


I'm really cookin' across the San Carlos Apache Reservation on the U.S. 70.


I see SNOW! I'm going up there...
