I thought about turning back, but I figured I would give it a try without the passport. Getting into the US wasn’t the problem; it was getting back to the truck and back across.

It turned into dirt, and got real good. Easy stuff, nothing technical, just good cruising. Eventually though, just like the rest of them, it deadened.
Well, it didn’t actually end. It would have been one hell of a hill on my dirtbike, but obviously impossible on the KLR. Pictures of this kind of stuff never give it justice, and the blur doesn’t help either. But, on the way in I noticed several interesting turnoffs.

But the best of all, I found quite a bit of riding that looked somewhat similar to this:
