With such a short window of four months here for me, a concentrated effort is needed to the get things done that I plan all summer in CO.

PM any time you do want to get out.

I chatted with a few local lads for a few, they told me the trail I was going to take has a cabin.



















With a concrete floor, bead board walls, T and G ceiling and a tin roof, this place was very comfortable at one time.

Mines were above.













Virga in late December.







Looking through the Jhonny Lyon hills at the mighty Rincon peak.

Out of the hills, I rolled through Dobsons ranch then across the west side of Allen flats to the head of what the local lads had called Scorpion canyon.
And more nice sand.







The gravel, rock, and sand has been moved allover the place from the great monsoons this summer.


























This Juniper root must have had to go around a big boulder that is no longer there.

The trail.

































I know this canyon by the name on the map, but the local lads had the landmark pegged!












The sharp end of a scorpion.

The last tough spot was better than the last time.







The canyon had shook, rattled, and rolled!

Back in the sunshine.













Rollin down the ridges to the river road.







Done with the dirt.

After dealing with this for ten days, I was ready to finish a project as soon as I hit the desert.
