    Any time I move about the backcountry I find myself marveling at the thought that folks did the same thing in wagons. Likely no map or compass, just heading towards the peak over yonder. Dirt and rock for sure. A wide open expanse. Sooo different than Moab. Hope to see more of your adventure.
    Take care my Friend.........

    Bet you guys came home with a good tan and many fine memories. You three probably smelled better than the pioneers too.

    Don't know Fred...3 days were cool and we were dressed for the cooler weather, I did get to wear shorts for one day...however, my face got it's Baseball Umpire tan started...as far as smelling better...3 showers in 8 days ? I usually take 2 or 3 a day and this old coot probably wasn't smelling like roses

    Riding south on Glenn Springs Road.... part 2

    Big Bend Motorcycle Run 2016 064.JPGBig Bend Motorcycle Run 2016 067.JPG[/ATTACH]Big Bend Motorcycle Run 2016 075.JPGBig Bend Motorcycle Run 2016 073 (1).JPG

    Little Doubt that Glenn Springs was my favorite road{only because I failed to ride the entie 26 miles of Old Ore...and when{as opposed to "if"} I get back down that way, I will plan on taking the Black Gap Road off Glenn Springs, which goes 8.5 miles until hooking up with West River Rd.....also the entire 26 miles Sand, Hills, Drop Offs be damned, of Old Ore...but age and time may have a say in that...but that is the hope.

    Up Next?

    Boquillas

    While Effanflood, Borneo, and Gary from Ft Wayne, made the crossing over the Rio Grande and into Boquillas, Mexico, the small border town that relies on the small tourist trade, Nick and I, sans Passports{mine long expired} settled for a couple of rides up the paved road to the Boquillas Overlook, and Canyon.

    The small town was clearly visible from the Overlook, where some fellow named Jose sold his walking sticks and trinkets via the Honor System....on a Normal 80 degree day bathed in Sunshine, I could have seen myself with a six pack of Tecate Beer and a long, slow smoking Cigar, not moving from a spot on the rocks, taking it all in.

    Beautiful pics...especially the one with the pink on the side of the plateau. It's surprising people leave crafts out to sell unattended. I've seen similar stuff in inner city Halifax oddly enough.
