Death Valley: Harry Wade Road
Baker provided fuel and fast food. North to Death Valley!
The sun beats down
as the asphalt zips by
It wasn't long before I'm in DV.
The Harry Wade Road (AKA Saratoga Springs/Badwater Road) was like riding in a ditch.
I spotted many reasons to stop for a closer look.
So far I'm liking the traction of the KBBs.
Crossing the Amargosa River
There was one section of deep gravel that made it really difficult to stay upright. Thankfully it only lasted 300 yards or so.
The Harry Wade Road intersects Badwater Road at a curve. I ended up in the middle of a large pack of bikes.
I stopped at Ashford Mills Ruins.
She Begs to be Ridden, Hard
I met Laura and Ed in the parking lot for the Ashford Mills Ruins. The were a very nice couple from Eastern Alberta. They were on a long ride. He had a 2010 Yamaha Venture and I think she was on a Kawasaki Vulcan. They were sweltering in the heat, but happy to be out of the snow.
