Thanks to all of you staying on the roads inside the National Monument. I know this may at times seem contrary to the "spirit of adventure" we are trying to enjoy on our rides, but to those of us that live in rural areas, the tire ruts running up the sides of the hills is just like grafitti on the sides of houses. Then it isn't long before the track becomes a trail, then a road. Over to short a time, we lose the "solitude" and "untouched" feeling that all of us enjoy about the Carrizo. These kinds of places have become so rare in the Southern California. Thanks for helpng it stay that way.
Unless the "roads" are swamps and shoulders are dry....then you gotsa do what you gotsa do....
