PHX - Yankee Doodle Ride Report

7 riders showed up for an interesting ride...

Goner - Yamaha WR450
Jaybiker - KTM 525
jrproper - KTM 530
ybracing - KTM 450
Kuru - KTM 250
Slowred - Honda 450x
Nightstalker - Honda 450x

Gearing up and ready to go.



We followed this trail, #304, on the Prescott National Forest map. I was leading and went up this rocky hill. Waiting near the top for the rest of the group.



Trail shot.



Still waiting.



And waiting...

I could hear voices echoing up from the valley, but no one responded to my calls. Time to go back down the hill and see what's going on.



Carnage is what I found. Kuru banging side to side on his 2 smoker.



Kuru going by.

Real tough to get going again once you are stopped.



Steaming his way to the TOP!

Everyone up the hill. There was much rejoicing!!



It was short lived. The hill was gone, the rocks stayed.



Slowred

Great views from the top.



The trail petered out and we were faced with a wall of thick brush. All this way and we had to turn back!



I managed to lose my GPS! We formed a search party and headed back. I was 100% sure we'd never find it in the thick overgrowth, but, Goner saved the day! This is about where he found my 60CSx.

Heading back to the hill.



Man, this was one crappy trail!



The hill, again. Going down was easier.



Great valley view.

Closing the gate on this trail!

Is that a pacifier hanging from JRproper's backpack?
