My passenger for the ride arrived at my house around 1000 hours, so we were 'geared-up', headed NE by 1030, the destination - the grave of Wyatt Earp's wife, Mattie Blaylock Earp, just N and E from Superior, this pic taken on a BETTER day....
As on my ride of the 22nd, clouds hung low over the Superstitions, only THIS time there was rain coming (or just fallen) from them. Stopped for pics of Picketpost Mt
Several miles later I turned N onto a dirt road, leery of the fact that it was "damp"
, but we rode in about 100 yards and I could see that I was NOT going further. It was "slickern-snot", so I stopped, we both dismounted, I walked the bike around, we re-mounted, then headed out, stopping for one last pic before hitting pavement.
Here's a close-up of that ONE little bit of blue sky over Picketpost....
Oh well - at least there was something warm to drink back at the house...!
