Too much of a good thing was a good title! Non-zonies may not realize what a big deal that much water is to us desert rats!
Well done, thanks.

After our ride, I wanted to see what the river looked like, and I almost swamped the bike coming back. In this video, at the spot where they splash across the stream, the water was almost seat height, and returning I was going against the flow and it stopped the bike DEAD! http://vimeo.com/21325422#t=119
great video work!

I learned to ride in East Mesa / Apache Jct, used to be open desert back in the early 70's.

There were powerlines running South of Broadway near Crisman Rd that would go out past what was probably Baseline / Southern and there was a pond (sort of) out there.

I haven't been out there since the late '70s.

It was a neat place to grow up.
