We head out to ride.
The desert is huge and we follow Bruno and Aaron to the dirt road.
Mark on his 640.
I traveled with a Cannon camera around my neck. It was the best way to make sure I would take pictures. It is easy to do when riding on pavement but not on dirt.
We finally hit dirt.
Here is Peter. He is an Eastern European drinking champion.
Mark is Czechosliovakian runner up in the drinking olympics.
We are finally going to eat dust. Lots and lots of dust.
Back on pavement.
We are going to the steps once we turn off this road.
We stop to fill up first.
This town was 110 feet below sea level. It was really warm at the lower elevations. Probably 60 degrees F out at this time during our ride.
Gas is not cheap in the desert. Californians pay too much for it. $2 more a gallon than in Michigan.
I think this is Echo Canyon we are about to ride through.
We reach the steps. Not so bad since a rain strorm covered them up with rocks and gravel, but a challenge all the same.
Andy goes first. Then Mark and Bruno.
Bruno gives it a try. Not so easy on a 500 pound KTM 950.
Three bikes up and safe.
Here is Aaron making fun of Bruno's small bike.
Andy's 660 got a scratch.
Matt on his Honda.
A three hundred pound guy on a 299 pound bike.
Some Jeep guys join the show to watch the carnage.
Joe makes it up.
I think the Jeep guys thought we were crazy.
It is much easier to go adventuring with help from your friends.
Peter with the LC4.

It is not the destination, it's the journey.
