You can stage at Wildcat, planning on 9:00 AM but am open to what works. PM me if you need directions.

Looks like Baja won't happen this month.

You already went out?

Let me know if you are hitting the trails anytime soon!

That is to bad about Baja, I already went yesterday - it was a great day. Hoping to get some photos posted soon. Big-E is riding tomorrow you might want to tag along with him. He is a great guy, looks like he will be doing part of the ride I did yesterday.

No one could make it yesterday so I decided to go Solo, which made me a little uncomfortable since the last time I went out solo ended with me getting hit by a dune buggy and in the hospital having my fifth knee surgery. But I'm glad I did it. It was a fantastic day. Just don't tell my wife Great dirt after all the moisture and an overall great ride.

This water crossing is always fun - especially with a little ice added to it.

Notice the nice damp ground - mmmmmm it was Nummy!

LOT'S of water crossings today.

Enjoying the views on the way to Sheep's Bridge

As DOD would say - "any more water than to fill a canteen is dangerous"

As you can see there was quit a bit of water and some mud. I took this shot in a milder section of mud. There were some spots where vehicles had made deep grooves - but fortunately the grove was dry enough you could stay in it and blast through - it was sketchy getting out of the grove however. I wish I could have gotten picture of it but I didn't dare stop. Good times.

The obligatory picture of Sheep's Bridge


As I said lots of water - Yeah - I got off and checked the depth There was a second crossing just beyond the picture here that was even deeper but narrower.

Horseshoe Dam


The crossing

The fun little uphill after coming across the dam.
Notice the tracks the dirt was NUMMY

Beauty shot - you guys tired of seeing my bike yet

Nice colors along the Verde River

I got done early enough - I decided to stop by the best Motorcycle shop in AZ.

The best Motorcycle mechanic in AZ was hard at work.

I saw that you had just gotten back into town from TX - so I figured you couldn't get away. I would have loved having you go with!

Take Pima Road to Cave Creek Road, take a right on Cave Creek Road and follow it until it turns to dirt - this goes to 7 Springs and the dirt road eventually turns into the Bloody Basin junction at the T you go right to head to Sheep's bridge. I don't have GPS coordinates on my GPS or I would send them to you. I have ridden the ride before and didn't need the GPS.
