Just a few miles of single trac on Sunday afternoon. Only one photo of a tough double track that leads to the single trac that circles this mountain. A bit of single trac certainly made me aware of my 3/4 worn-out MT21. The off camber sections were like riding on ice. Also reminded me as to why this O'l-guy no longer craves the single groove!
Thought it was s nice photo...

Another time... Riding not far West of Wickenburg... just kinda cow-trailing... free style riding. Just going from Point A to B. Not following any particular trail or road. Came upon this mess in the desert
It seems that sometime I'm guessing 50 or 60 years ago someone buried a bunch of junk here. Looked like a household dump sight with several machine parts, boots, your name it buried here. Well... scavengers found the spot looking for ? ? ? Digging down 4 or 5 feet, where things were buried. Discarding unwanted items all around the hole and leaving them. Not taking the time to scoop them back in the hole.
This kind of thing does not set-real-well with me. Just the same as people now dumping in the desert as far as I'm concerned. I guess this is the ugly side of "civilization".

That is a lot of junk in the desert.

Always fun to go exploring though, never know what you might find.

Another time... to the East of Wickenburg... a simple circle from constellation road, crossing the Hassayampa River, back to the metropolis of Wickenburg. Approximately 45 miles, 3 hours.


Came across this li'l critter... he seemed to be intrigued by my Pirelli


Just got me one of them-thar RESCUE-ME colored helmet's!

Another time... What can I say, when the weather is good I go riding!
This was a exploratory expedition West of town. Just looking around some old mining/ranching roads. Had three turnarounds as there were lots of rolling Obama rocks on some of the climbs and descents. Not the best terrain to be riding alone.


Took a little break in the shade of this Saguaro... After taking this photo I noticed a buzzing sound.


Found it A Honey Bee hive in one of the Boots in the Saguaro... see the hive


Needless to say I slipped away quietly, checking my gear for buzzer's before putting it back on.



This was one of my turn-around spots... did not like those big rocks at the bottom and just straight back up the other side with tree limbs in the middle of the trail


A great day to be in the Wilds of AZ...



A concrete wildlife watering contraption... Cattle are fenced out.


Then this Happy little fella on the way back... Notice my tire tracks near the fang end. He was really singing a tune. A sound you never forget!


This dirt tank ran over the top of the dam in late September. Nearly dry now...


If you want to know where I am... Vulture Peak is through my windshield.


This was the pace today...
Hope you are enjoying these little excursions... I do!

Surprised the rattlers are still out. I figured we'd be done with them by now.
