PHX - Bloody Basin Trail Talk

12 riders came out to enjoy an easy dual sport ride and have an opportunity to find out how our Arizona OHV sticker money gets spent.

Here's my best recollection of those present:

JayHawk DR 650
Michhub KTM 990
Kevinsterner Honda 250L
AzTinBender Yamaha XT350
AZstateParksOHV Kawasaki KLR650
IBRiding
nwemerys
PoDawg
azgary Suzuki DR 350
Viper05 Triumph Trophy Trail
Todd BMW 1200 GS

We met at McDonalds and headed to our first trail stop, Sears Kay ruins near Carefree.

Stop at the historic 51 Ranch to recollect all the riders.





The Wild West in the background.



I think there's a UFO in this shot.

The climb up Hutch Mesa.



Looking back into the Bloody Basin valley.



Michhub on his KTM 990.



I do occasionally stop to enjoy the scenery.

We met up with Todd on his 1200 GS about 6 miles from the interstate. I'm hoping he'll find his way into the ADVRider community at our urging.



Last pictures of the day.







Our group split at Cordes Junction. About half the group returned to Phoenix and the other half headed to Mayer for tasty treats.

Nice looking ride. I've always wondered about that 51 ranch. Any info you can share about it?

Did you know that the ranch on bloody basin at the agua fria river was recently purchased by game and fish?
