About 0900 hrs yesterday, skipper1940 and I headed N to ride some dirt. We 'filled up' in Apache Junction,
then headed up AZ 88 (the Apache Trail's 'number'), till we hit the end of the pavement where I took this one.
Then it was E to the Fish Creek Hill, down it, then along the bottom of the valley - INCREDIBLY green (probably the MOST green I've ever seen, and this tree's leaves were yellow and falling off last time I rode the 'Trail', NOT very long ago...)!
A few miles later I turned S onto the "Reavis Ranch Trailhead" access road, leading Skip up this very narrow (BARELY one lane wide) but scenic route, keeping a good eye-out for vehicles coming down (we didn't see any, but I have in the past - SCARY some times!). At the end of the three miles you're a couple of thousand feet HIGHER, now at the start of the trailhead, a place I've stopped for lunch several times, even if I have NOT gone 'walking' up it. BEAUTY view...!
Coming down I told Skip to lead, but that I'd be awhile - stopping for pics.... Notice how much green is evident...!
Soon I 'hit' the bottom, turned E onto the Apache Trail where Skip waited.
