Great job!

Glad it proved useful! I try to help the next guy as far as planning goes.

In fact a ranger stopped me on any ore road and asked me to get back on the main roads being as I'm riding solo and, as it was out of season and they didn''t patrol those roads much in the Summer and if I had a problem, I would probably be dead before they found me. I thanked him and did so.
Thanks Andy! It certainly is a great area to visit - even several times. Good advice about not riding alone in the desert.

Thanks for the info and photos.
Thanks! I'm glad you had a great trip and got to enjoy Pinto Canyon. There is so much great stuff to see and experience in that area. I probably need to get back down there myself.
