    It was a beautiful day today, but I had a bunch of stuff I had to get done. It was late afternoon before I got a chance to jump on the TW and go. I had read about a geocache near a pictograph in the area, and I wanted to check it out.



    On the way to the cache I passed by a site where dinosaur tracks had been found.



















    Like I said, it was a beautiful day to be out in the boonies!











    I had to park the bike and do some hiking to find the cache.

    There's a little water in the wash, not that common in these parts.







    I wonder if someone a bunch of years from now will find these tracks.







    Can you spot the cache?







    There it is.







    Directions inside the cache pointed the way to the Red Man pictograph higher up the canyon wall.



    It's crazy what some wind and sand can do.











    The pictograph is up there somewhere.







    It's barely visible in this picture, at about 12 o'clock near the top.

    Getting closer.







    The pictograph is about 3 1/2 to 4 feet tall. Kind of unusual.







    The TW is down there waiting patiently.







    The sun was getting pretty low by the time I got back to the TW. The frogs were croaking in the wash, and the quail were calling. I tried to record that for you, but it didn't work out. That's alkali on the ground, not snow. I'm still trying to decide if I like the cup mount better, or the coupling mount.







    Time to head home.



    My efforts to shoot some video didn't work so well this trip, but here's a little bit for you to look at.

    Oh, yeah! It was dark by the time I got home. I just had a light jacket on, and wasn't cold at all. Things are starting to green up around here, and the apricot blossoms are in bloom.

    Very nice scenery! No place like that around here to ride a TW.



    After you left Redman how long did it take you to get home?
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    That's pretty cool seeing/finding prehistoric dinosaur tracks, pictographs, and geocaches on the same afternoon/evening ride. Whenever I go out riding into the rocky bluff areas, I look for pictographs and petroglyphs too. Last Friday I went for a ride (RR in the works), and was in similar type country. While searching for, and finding a cache at the base of a small cliff face, I was looking for pictographs, but none here. Is the pictograph you've shown, one with lots of visitors, or is it in an out of the way place not many know of?



    Keep the video's coming on your rides when you can, I like 'em.
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Great shots and story. With a 14 day old newborn my TW and riding are on the shelf for a while.

    Great report. Thanks for taking us along for the ride. Dynamite trail in that video.



    What camera are you using? I have a handlebar RAM mount for a camera, but I don't think my Olympus Pen E PL-1 with its big lens sticking out would survive the punishment.

    Love that country. My Gr-Grandfather homesteaded up on the Az Strip, near Pipe Springs. There's a road up there that carries the family name.

    Hope to take a TW adventure up there someday...Toroweap would be a great ride.
    “One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.”

    ― Edward Abbey
