After nearly an hour of riding I'm finally out of the Phoenix Metro and into the desert.
Gonzalez Pass, US 60
I then ride south on the SR 177 from Superior towards Kearny
For some reason I haven't ridden this road in about 9 years. I forgot all about the wonderful ribbon of asphalt.
I pass the ASARCO Ray Mine. The roadway curves right along the edge. I should have stopped at the overlook, but am worried about making good time. I'm not sure how rough the roads will become on the route I have planned...
I do stop to get a couple shots of the BIG DUMPTRUCKS!
This brought back memories of days playing in the dirt with my Big Yellow TONKA truck as a kid.
I get caught up in a group of Sunday riders.
I make it past San Manuel where the asphalt ends on Redington Road.
