the 4 Peaks, and Apache Trail

Went for a bit of a 'cruise' today, with a buddy on his KLR. We decided to ride the trail around 4 Peaks which is labelled as an "Easy" ATV road, and it was quite enjoyable, though rocky, pot-holey, washboardey, and occasionally - soft sand. From the start just off 87, the BeeLine Hwy, it's about 17 miles to the saddle and then another 10 miles down to Hwy 188 near the Roosevelt Lake.

Being Monday probably helped, as we only saw one other vehicle on the 4 Peaks part - an ATV with 2 guys in it, near the start. The road is very twisty, and at times I think you might have problems if someone is 'screaming' toward you around some of the tighter turns.

Stopped for lunch at the Roosevelt Dam, then had ice cream for dessert at Tortilla Flats, 26 miles of MORE washboard later.

BTW - the Tourance tires are working out just FINE!
