Big weekend of concerts, I'm beat, but here's one pic for a teaser, I'll hopefully get some more up tomorrow. You're too fast on the keyboard Dave! I can't keep up...

How's this zipper-thingy work?



I think this cemetery is really interesting. It feels so "old-school" with the human sized mounds of dirt with a simple cross above it... Honest.



Even more honest is the lingering pile of "used" grave ornamentation just outside the fence.





A guy having success at Parker Lake. (It didn't break my heart to ride all the way down there AT ALL Dave. Good for my new tires! )





No, no, don't wait, go ahead!





And there it is, there's old Mexico, just a few feet away...



It was a really, really nice day to be out riding. The after dark part was chilly, but SOMEONE is wise enough to use an electric vest.

Let's do it again Dave, I'm glad we both got to see something old and something new. I'll be back to AZ for sure!

Nice smugmug page Jared!

The Viola-tor captured me in my standard riding position... With a camera in one hand.

Brilliant - such a good memory jogger for me, I came over last year and did the Dragoon mountains and around Fort Bowie on horseback - great to see what it looked like on two wheels - cant wait to get back over there! Maybe I will do it on two wheels this time instead of 4 legs??!!

Just south of Texas Canyon is the Triangle T Ranch. A WWII POW camp
for high ranking German officers. Now a touristy trap, but still in a very
beautiful area with lots of history.

Great report! Keep on keepin' on.

You rat-bastards are soooo lucky to live here

I did Ruby Road yesterday and that was a great road!
BTW, I lost a tailbag with a couple of MSR fuel bottles somewhere out there on Ruby, so if you're getting low on fuel, scan the roadside and you might get lucky

Enjoyed

I sure enjoyed your travels thru Southern Arizona.

Pitty this is closed-----I was there earlier in the year (Jan.) and found out it was closed because of people leaving trash and motorcycles with loud exhausts.

It is private land---too bad you can't go there anymore.

I tried getting to the paramore crater near there also---private. I went to a ranch on a dead end rode and was going to try and find someone and sweet talk my way to the crater---but no one around.

Thanks for the recent replies guys.

Big Dog, Your Pancho and Lefty RR was one of the reasons I decided to check out this part of my own state. Thanks!

LoneStar, Your recent RR was great!

Dave and all ancestral predecessorial southern AZ ride reporters - thanks for posting the pics and reports - my trip over was worth the ride and wish I had more time to explore the region. It was great

Dave, your photo skills are impressive bud

Looking forward to heading back in the future
