We were just sort of meandering along on one of the seldom used roads, and this is where the rain damage started getting really apparent.. And the road we were on just started getting deeper and deeper from washed water. We kept following what looked like the tracks from a rancher's Chevy Blazer or something and all of a sudden they ended and the road kept getting deeper in the crack... And narrower.

But this was clearly the road according the the GPS. We cruised about a mile into it and it was pretty F'g cool and we even hopped out at a spot where we could get out to make sure we were on the road.. But we were....! So back in.. And time to have some fun!

And here's what is looked like. Death Star Canyon!



We just kept rallying through and it was pretty fast for a while and non technical. Standing up it felt like we were just sort of hovering through it and it was straight as an arrow and loong, what felt like maybe 5-6 miles total if lucky...

You can see these little "rocks" in there. They were just pieces of clay, you could ride right into one and it would go "poof"




Here it starts getting a little more techie with the mix of the dust rocks and sand..



And more techie..
