Goler Wash on Nov. 5

A few Picts of Goler Wash from less than two weeks ago for your viewing pleasure...











Lots of 4x4s made it through and created bypasses. No problem on a motorcycle.

Mengel Pass



a little rocky going down, but I'm sure easier down than up....




Try not to go too fast. I got a little carried away right here.





I am glad to have the FMF Q4 exhaust, the quietest I could find. Earlier in the morning I saw a large bobcat, but I'm not that quick with a camera.









Then going through a canyon, I was spooked by Sheep running up the mountain right next to me.



This was my first time spotting these guys in the wild. What a treat!

Good stuff, John!! I've seen a bobcat in Goler before, but not bighorn...way cool!!!


Did they really drive stakes at the top of Mengel to try to close Goler off?

Finally Goler looks fun, can't say much for those Mengels pics, seen it look way rougher (read) more fun in recent years.

The best thing is that with the lack of funding for parks, this should stay this way for the whole season at least.

Oh I see where the stakes and ribbon are now, behind the grave.
