I pulled onto the road across the Dam, parked BIG RED, then took a few more pics. This is the view downstream from it.
While these are OF the dam itself and the San Carlos Lake
...and here's a gratuitous shot of the Versys...
..., unfortunately ALSO showing some extra "embellishments" added w/ 'rattle-cans' by 'persons unknown'.
Two officers from the San Carlos police stopped for a chat, so I mentioned the 'tagging' - they said that it's a pretty big problem here, regrettably, then we chatted about taking pics, and the flowers.
They waved, then headed S. I suited-up, got back on, set my GPS to take me home
, riding back N on AZ 170.
Just back enroute to San Carlos I took a FEW more 'poppy pics'
then got into the "get-home" mode (despite some significant gusty, turbulent winds...), stopping for gas in Superior, and taking the picturesque road N thru Queen Valley to the W Silver King Road, follower by El Camino Viejo Road and back S on AZ 79 and home (NICE way to add 20 minutes to a ride!
Got back home at 1430, 188.8 miles behind me, in 4.5 hours!
GREAT day for riding...!
