Flagstaff was to be my destination, I was heading for the Overland Expo
As I looked at my odometer, I realised that I'd managed to cover over 5,000 miles in the four weeks since I had left Phoenix, and yet I was just 120 miles from my starting point.
I knew I was heading in the right direction when I saw vehicles like this
Then, while I was at a petrol station, two bikes did a U-turn and pulled up, they had recognised Thelma - she's getting so famous that before I know it she'll be asking for her own Facebook page. The riders were Mark Ordway and Gaurav Jani who had literally just flown in from Delhi, loaded his stuff onto a borrowed GS and headed up to the Expo. I tagged along with them (I'm sure I was invited!)
I requested some off-roading, Mark knows many of the trails in this part of the world and we headed up Schnebly Hill Road
As always, I didn't slow to take photos on the gnarly bits, just too busy hanging on. Further up we stopped for a break and I got some pictures
just lost the rest of this page as the computer crashed..off to make pasties for tea, I'll finish this section later
