Cool2 Backyard Trek's, Wickenburg AZ... New Posts at the End...

Fellow Inmates...

I'm fortunate to have the opportunity to ride in the high-desert around my home in Wickenburg AZ. Usually leave from the shop but occasionally trailer to a starting point. Generally keep rides -100 miles. Always have a camera or three with me and thought I would share some of my li'l rides with you intermittently.
I mostly ride alone so photos may seem somewhat biased toward a street legal Honda xr400 and a chunky, casually attired, slow older guy.
Hope you enjoy my backyard Trek's...

First few images were taken around Easter..










ATOS Mine remains dated March 1940



My kind of Gila Monster... the going away kind !


Look'n back...


Another Day
Constellation Townsite...










Another Day...
Stanton, Octave area






Railroad track trimmed and used for a corner post !




Twisted steel coral on the way to Yarnell...


another by-my-tire photo, Thistle blossom...


on a hill overlooking Yarnell


Damn backlighting... actually a good pix of my face !


Another Day...
Date Creek rd. to the Northern entrance to the Ruger Ranch. This large ranch was cut into several mini ranches upon Bill Rugers death a few years ago. Most of the lots with fancy fencing etc. are undeveloped. I had intended to peruse through the area but locked gates at the Rail Road tracks derailed my intentions. Did give me a chance to do some exploring in the area... another day!










Another Day...
North of Forepaugh


New cockpit addition Garmin 60cx & 24K Topo. maps... No I'm not an expert with it at this point!



This "deep" dirt tank was nearly at the tree line in January. Kind'a dry here this spring...


Another one of those "near my tire photo's" just could not get my wheel up that high and take the pic at the same time...


This O'l girl had seen much more Majestic days...


This is my one & only closeup of a Saguaro Bloom without using a ladder !





Wheat harvest near Aguila, watched this teenager wheel this $500,000.00 machine like it was his pickup for about 1/2 hour... Remember I'm a Misplaced Farm Boy! Brings back lots of good memories.


Noticed tire was kinda soft when I arrived back at shop !



Not one but two culprits... The slime could not mend the big one because I did not find them soon enough and they got wollered out pretty good. However it did fix the 15 or so smaller holes. Had been loosing 1lb or so a week so was suspicious of a leak. I'm guessing the two were picked up the last day of riding. For my peace-of-mind a new tube was in order, approximately 2300 miles on tube & MT21.
