If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Day one

Some obligatory shots from the first ten miles
Jeff


Rick


Big Don


Kevin hauling the mail and making dust


It was pretty cool watching the sheep, the dogs and the herders. The flock had two guard dogs and three or four working dogs, This one did not like Jeff :)




Rick in the back of a hunters truck trying to stay out of the way


A little further up the road we found this wagon that the herders lived in while tending the sheep. They hobbled their horses at night and let them feed. Ancient way of life still going on today.




Where the heck are we?!!


Getting ready to run this road across the park. During planning I thought this was paved. Boy was I wrong!


Here's where it starts



Down into the valley


Headed to that road below


See the rider?



more later...


John

Let me see if I can add anything from day 1.. Kevin and John took more, (and superior) pics than I did..

I couldn't help but get a blurry pic of my seat covered with frost that first morning. We had been averaging over 100 this summer. It was a bit of a shock.



Another sheep shot.



Great views right off the bat.



A little bit about where we were. Apparently it is a great target also..



Great riding.




View from the roadside.


Stats for the day..

Another Sheep shot. Really just a test, I can not get my pictures to load to Smug Mug. This is a back door try!
