So my day went something like this. Get on the Triumph at about 8am. Phoenix, to Peoria, to Wickenburg, to Nothing, to Bagdad, to Hillside, to Skull Valley, to Kirkland, to Peeples Valley, to Yarnell, to Congress, To Wickenburg, to Carefree, to Cave Creek, to Scottsdale, to home.
That's a good day. Even got a mountain bike ride in after it all.
Hot air balloons across the sky in the morning.
All or Nothing in Nothing, AZ.
Beautiful geology around this area.
Ready to head up to Bagdad.
Be sure to watch for cattle.
Bagdad is a company owned mining town. No private property around here. Company built homes for all the many workers.
Over 100 years ago Hillside was the ore processing town for Bagdad and other mines. Now it's a sleeping town of not much with some left over history.
Pretty road. No traffic. Roads that start in Nothing and go to no where don't tend to be busy.
Theres a sign you don't see often.
Lunch! Not good, not bad. Friendly service, hot coffee. Good to go.
I knew I felt cold! Snow still on the surrounding hills.
A bit ironic.
Old Santa Fe railroad.
Looking down toward Wickenburg.
The road ahead.
I had to drop by Rancho De Los Caballeros. We took a family trip here from California when I was about 10. Good memories of horse riding.
I was definitely having a better day than this guy!
