After Saturday's fun ride with Fred, Adam and Phil I decided I needed a wide open desert ride before heading home Monday. We talked about a Canyon in these parts where wild mustangs roam and 2000-4000 year old Petroglyphs are on rocks. Beautiful weather like we had Saturday had me wearing a sweatshirt again. After seeing about 20 wild horses I found the tee in the road with the power lines that I read about. Hmmmm, which way? We'll Virginia City is right so lets go left! a few hundred yards and met up with a quad rider and couple in a UTV. Asked them where the Petroglyphs were and they too were looking for them (this was their 3rd try). Ahhhh the pink car I had read about. Take a right and deep water crossing but since quad made it thru I could too. Piece of cake (didn't even get my boots/socks wet Joeband). Bingo! Found it!!! Woo hoo! Had that quad not gone before me I wouldn't have attemped the crossing because you are truly out in the boonies! Checked it out and found dead horse at bottom of ravine. UTV driver took the skull to mount on the back for his UTV. They offered beer, chips/salsa which I of course accepted not wanting to offend the locals. People out riding in Nevada are so nice! a couple of non tw dual sports showed up and then about 8 UTV's with their dogs showed up. Its a party out in the desert! Close to noon I said my goodbyes and headed to Virginia City for lunch. Was not able to find dirt trail right up to V.C but I'll work on that next time. A lot of Harleys in V.C. and they were checking out my TW. I think it would be a hoot to ride into town with a bunch of Tw riders. Any interest on a group ride to this canyon and V.C for lunch on Memorial day weekend? (I'll be in town with GF who will be in bingo blowout).
