12 hours away.........

Having spent many days of summer under the Old Pueblo sun, I know the month of June can contain the most suffering of all.

With that said, here is my yearly invite by picture to you dwellers of SE. AZ.

Over the next few weeks I will throw a few enticing shots at you to encourage visitation to the region I live in.

If any riders do make it here for some guidance, the only compensation I will accept is a beer and few dozen hand made tortillas from South Tucson

Due to the Snow pack this season access to the high country has been normal, unless you ask faithful follower of false science.

Hey John, have you flown a copter over this? I made it up there yesterday, but it is very hard to get to. Steep to the wreckage below the crash impact. I saw from above that there was a trail down below, but not sure how to get there.

Did you hike with Elisabeth?

Pictures by you HTM please, looking down the steep trail, or any off of the summit of Basset.

Now it will take some real skill to match Cathy in riding talent, we would love to show you the challenging side of Tucson, if you are up to it, we are excited to show you the so called "Road Less Traveled". Oh, and why we may not be Ian Anderson with our Jethro Tull like bikes, we sure can beat the local marching band's flute players.
Thanks, Hoosier, and sorry for my late reply: I've been off grid while making my annual migration to northern UT for the summer! I'm sure I won't catch YZFCathy, but would always enjoy some Tucson riding!

I have to verify my climbs now Dawg?

The only other persons with me were Jill and Mandy. Very sad to see two lives cut short for some reason.

I am sorry you took my post that way.

The Galiuros are my absolute favorite range in SEAZ, for riding and backcountry rambling. The veiws from the ridge tops and summits are price less for many reasons, one of them is the effort it takes to obtain them. Another is the location of the range being central in the Sky Island district.

Thanks for the nice shots.

Being stuck in Colorado for the work season I really enjoy seeing pictures of the home country I so appreciate and look forward to returnig to (after Oct.).

Long time ago.

We don't get out east much anymore. If I get some free time, I'll head over there and take a look.

Wow - very interested!

Do you have space for a 22 ft travel trailer?

September?

No believer in foolish trendy science!

I'm trying to plan a ride for the (early) fall. I'm thinking over Redington to pick up the AZBDR route, up to the north rim and back. Maybe shoot for a night at Bar-10 ranch for a turn-around point. Small bikes. Think six days would be enough time? Has anybody done this route? I don't want to start a thread in Trip Planning yet, but I wanted to see if anybody had done any of this route before.

I laid out a ride all dirt (well 95%) from here to the South rim and back. We did it on big bikes and it took 7 days. I am thinking you would really have to hustle to get it done in 6.
