Just one of many flavors Adam-in-Nevada, Boarder255 & I experienced on last weekend's high country Camp-n-Ride. Really scenic country. While still numerous I think the wildflowers were a bit more spectacular a a week ago.
The video ended too soon! I was just getting into it. I suppose the trail ended too soon for you all as well. Looked fun.
Oh, that was just a few miles along Desert Creek on our way back after a fairly longer single track linking a few drier canyons with a more desert feel, then splashing tghrough a bunch of 2-track creek crossings before the video. Next we summited 11,682 ft peak since we were in the neighborhood. Long day with naps & fresh baked blueberry pie when we got back to camp.
Guess I have a few more videos I could cook up.
Yes, cook away!
...here is one fresh out of the oven.
Admiral and others may recognize some of this from a previous Group Ride.
Betty Boop's 223cc 6-speed motor made things easier but her stock motor also made it up to the same summit last summer. The gang both had fuel injected bikes so they ran and sounded a bit better.
While the upper reaches are called "Mars with Wildflowers" I didn't see any Martians nor wildflowers. Just stunning vistas in all directions. An amazing ride destination.

This is how the mini-group ride actually began Saturday morning. It had been raining from Thursday afternoon when I arrived untill the gang showed up early Friday evening. Three of us went for a short ride in the dark Friday night seeking better cell reception so while fun doesn't really count. Fun begins when we leave camp the next morning and boogie on eventually to the singletrack. Since he had not ridden this trail before we had Boarder255 lead & get to break the rain cleansed crust. Fun laying down the first tracks.

Evan brought his dog Jazzy for our entertainment. sweetwater jazzy.jpg
Scenic aspen lined grassy meadows could be found around 8,000 feet. sweetwater aspens .jpg
All that grass meant lots of gophers so we saw our share of what I guess were red tail hawks hunting them. sweetwater hawk.jpg
Yep, going camping and riding with motorcycle forum friends is hard to beat.
On a side note, I can't figure out why some of my video's posted to the ytube are getting pixelated. I've seen another guy recently post about his problems as well so not sure if it's a computer/editor software issue or ytube hates us now!
