What a ride


Allen in MT

Recommended Posts

What a ride. New Years day me my wife and 3 other couples went for a ride in the mtns of Az.

We off loaded on a pull out at Lake Pleasant and took off. The guy leading us knows the area very well and kept us off the main trails, at times I don't think there was a trail as it was a grueling climb. I bottomed out pretty hard a few times and went over some sharp areas where it was 4' and thru some awful prickly brush, but there was a trail of sorts. We ended up climbing over 6000' and was into snow for a bit and then made our way down into Crown King (old mining town) the back way for a bite of lunch and then headed down a jeep trail where we met about 35 4-wheeler jeeps trucks etc. on the way up one boulder at a time. In all we traveled 74 miles in just under 8 hours.

It was a good ride cool in the morning when we took off and warmed up to high 60's We were bit tired and dirty but fun.

The picture is of the group after we made it to the bottom for a break.

Talking about a over night cross country trip to Quartzite which is over 100 miles one way.

Sounds like a great time Allen. The kind of trip that you will always remember and talk about how much fun it was. I did the same type of trip last summer. We rode from Downieville to LaPorte. I think it was a total of 80+ miles in a Rhino. What an adventure!

Sounds like you guys went up the Minnehaha way and came back down through Burro John. My buddies and I do that ride at least once a month just cause it's a fun ride. Sometimes I'll just hop on my dirt bike for a quick ride up and back and have lunch at the Mill just to clear my head. :thumbsupanim
