10/5/07 garland prairie

n. az ride 10/5.. some mud, rain
I got a new tire, so wanted to try it out before leaving town. My riding buddy Kim was game to go, so we headed up oak creek canyon to fs 535 to head toward Williams. It rained off & on, & the trails were muddy. I didn't take very many pics.. it was supposed to be a short ride.. we didn't leave until 11:30.. but we ended up over 100 miles & looped up all the way to flag before coming back down the canyon.

First, my new tire!


the few shot i took- Kim at a break.


A nice herd of antelope on garland prairie:




We got into a lot of mud.. i was glad i had on a new front tire. It slipped around a bit, but i didn't go down. the open prairies were very slippery.. & there were some big pools of water covering the road we had to splash through. We had raincoats, so didn't get soaked. Once up to I-40, we came back along old rt. 66 to flag, then back down 89a to home. It was getting cold in flag by 5pm! Time to do desert riding! The mountains will have to wait until spring!
