Great pics, and sounds like you had a fun time. Kind of cool up there now isn't it?I just got a TW200 a few months ago and took it to the AZ Strip for its first outing. The AZ Strip is the portion of AZ that lies north of the Colorado River. I camped out in Houserock Valley which is on the east side of AZ Strip. There are free ranging buffalo there, but I did not encounter any on my trip. I used my camp as a hub for exploring and predator calling.
One of the places I visited was North Canyon. I decided to use this picture for my avatar.
North Canyon is a little tributary that drains into the Colorado River. The cliffs at the top of the picture is where the Colorado River is located. North Canyon is also part of the Grand Canyon National Park.
This is looking upstream into North Canyon where it starts as a box canyon.
The farthest I could travel south of camp was to the boundary of the Saddle Mountain Wilderness Area. I came across a wildlife water catchment there maintained by the AZ Game and Fish Dept. The high mesh wire fencing was to keep the buffalo and deer off the water collection structure.
The notices in the area stated this was a â€ścontrolled burn.â€ť The burning was being done on the Kaibab Plateau near Saddle Mountain.
A few days later I needed to get some ice. The closest place was Cliff Dwellers Lodge which was about 65 miles round trip from camp. I used the TW200 to get the ice and haul it back to camp. I found out the action packer box holds two10 pound blocks of ice perfectly inside. I quickly learned it also makes the front wheel lighter and the bike handled much differently on the washboard rode back to camp.
I did try to do some predator calling, but had no luck. My problem was that I was having so much fun riding the TW200, I did not spend much time hunting. On the last day I got a flat front tire about 1 mile from camp. Drove the bike back to camp on the flat. Broke camp and headed home.
