Topo map replays of the trail rides:

Trail Ride #3 -- 11/03/2012 -- 90 miles of Beginner trails
Trail Ride #4 -- 11/04/2012 -- 120 miles of trails with Intermediate sections
A few photos:


My first bike to ride was the Honda XR100R but just a day and a half later I was ready for the Suzuki DR-Z400.


Pausing for a photo with the Honda XR100Rs and Ian pauses in one of the rocky dry creek beds.


Pausing for a photo along Polvadera Road with the Suzuki DR-Z400 and then with Ghost Ranch in the background (Ian was on his BMW 1100GS this day).


Obviously, this was a road/trail perfectly suited for trail bikes (Intersection of Forest Road 133 and US Route 64) and later I encountered my first-ever water crossing.


My 1st lengthy rocky descent which is part of about a 2-mile stretch of rock-covered trail and then it was time for lunch.


Another rocky section with Ian showing how it is done on a Suzuki DR-Z400.


Pausing in front of the Abiquiu Reservoir with Ghost Ranch in the background and some nice weather for gazing at the sky.
