Capt.Saveaho, crw, and my trip started Thursday morning at 0600. I picked up CRW at his house, then drove to my parents house 20 minutes away to get my stuff and savaho, and his stuff. It was raining really hard, and it sucked to get loaded up in. No pics, and in our rush to get out of the rain we forgot some stuff. Oh well. We got to PSR around 1630, and were greeted by the constant howl of wind. We got camp set up, then headed to the restraunt for some nice greasy food to lube up our arteries. On our way out we met DSM8 who invited us to join him going over South Pass towards Hunter mountain in the morning. We agreed to meet up with him in the morning to attempt Hunter Mountain....How bad could it be, it's the desert after all.



We left camp Friday morning around 0830 or so headed towards Saline Valley Rd.

DSM8 and Capt.Saveaho chat at Father Crowley point on the way to Saline Valley Rd.


Photo Op on Saline Valley Rd.... Saveaho's hands are cold.


The birthday boy himself.


As we approached the south pass it got cold.........I thought we were riding in the desert?


DSM8 LOVES the snow. Poor guy, we kept telling him it cleared up just around the next corner. He finally caught on and said "go 5 miles, turn around and come back. I'll wait here." If we had actually gone 5 miles he'd probably still be waiting.


Another shot of the Hunter Mountain Parking lot.


We finally made it 200' up Hunter mountain. Saveaho does his happy dance.


CRW on over South Pass.


A shot looking east from Saline Valley Rd. at the base of Hunter Mountain.


After what seemed like an eternity getting our bikes back to something that resembled a snowy rd we headed back towards 190. We took a little detour on some fun single track that I dint get many pics of because, well, I was riding and it was flowing pretty well.

DSM8 finishing the single track.


We headed back to 190 where we ate a snack. DSM8 headed back to camp while saveaho, CRW and I headed towards Darwin. Not many pics of the ride into or out of Darwin because again we found ourselves on some 2 track that flowed really well. We were flyin, and I was having a great time watching saveaho and CRW bounce off each other while jockeying for position as we flew through the desert at 40-50.

A quick shot of CRW eying up the road we took from Darwin to somehow get us back to PSR.

Since my last attempt overwhelmed my photobucket account, I will just post a few highlights here.

Ready to ride on Friday AM with Kevin and Seth


The crew at the top of Mengel Pass


Exploring mines in the Darwin area


Into the snow on Cerro Gordo


Last ride (for me anyhow) on the old 250. I sold it yesterday...


If you want to see the whole RR, I moved it to here:

Sat Ride to


Met a friend at the end of Cottonwood Canyon on Sat. It starts at the end of the airport at Stovepipe wells



My jerry rigged gas can was full just in case.


My camera was acting up all weekend so the focus is off and the color too.


Hike at the end about eight miles further in the canyon. There is a spring in there for water filtering. It ends up around Lee Flat according to some







Perfect for a N00b


Saw this in the Mosaic Canyon parking

Vans!

fun riding big bikes if there are long stretches connecting the dirt riding areas

we stopped at the ranger station in stovepipe to get our dv park fee. assuming all the dirty pucks paid, then the park would have gotten at least $1,200 from us that weekend. cheers and great contribution by everyone.
