Eldorado Canyon was a handful with a fully loaded and gassed up bike. I wouldn't recommend it for anything much bigger than a DRZ. My load was not packed the best either. Sorted it out on the second day and got the heavy stuff lower.
First water crossing:
Critters... one of many lizards. Only saw three snakes, no rattlers.
Not sure how long this had been here. I'm thinking the only way it made it down this far in this canyon would be floating down the Carson River.
