Howling Winds

Last night the talking weather-heads were predicting brutal winds gusting to 50 mph starting around noon. So, we got up early (for us) and were on the bikes at 10:00, planning on a two hour ride. This is the Shaft. We went and looked at it and it doesn't look all that bad. Staying to the right is definitely the good line through the rocks. We decided to stay in the south end of the park so we'd be closer to the truck, so we did not ride this today. Once you start this trail, you're committed to doing a fairly longish ride, since all trails are one way.

Here is Jim, leaning on a post. Is he not looking like the quintessential mountain biker?

The wind was a little early, going back to the truck, we had very frisky little cross wind. This is an area of blowing dust on the way home. Up near Casa Grande they get big dust storms, have 50 car pile ups, and all of that.

I don't think we got the predicted 50 mph gusts, and that's a good thing.

Whoo-hoo! UPS just got here with the Zappos order for Jim and me. Free shipping, free returns!
