Up at the top of trail 15 we roll over to 10 then 70 then the posse gathers for a run up to the top of the cinder cone.
Up at the top some friends in low places…
The Three Sisters.
We drop down to the bottom of the cone and continue south. Here we break near Highway 20.
Then cross the pavement for a little high speed action.
I zoom ahead through the Kotzman Basin to a favorite picture taking spot. Here’s looking back.
The long desert run terminates here with a little turn to the right then up a slight grade to a cross road. Not overly technical by any stretch but more riders have trouble here than I think should. Maybe it is because I am standing here with a camera waiting for trouble?!
Kiwi James rolling easy.
And bogging down in the silt.
Eric making it look easy.
Dave getting the KLR sideways in style.
Eric P on the approach.
Bogs in the silt…
But pulls out easily!
All on the cross road now with big volcanic outcropping behind us.
And the trees of East Fort Rock ahead of us in the distance.
Up next, East Fort Rock, East Lake and Hole in the Ground…
