onward,,, wanted to head to the white mtns,,, for a fly fishing overnighter.

i wont bore you with the hiway out of town, but i took a favorite route through globe, clifton and up the 191.

the superior tunnel


old train station in clifton, lots of neat old buildings around here.


couple shots of the open pit mine at morenci



a photo op of the twisties along the 191 didnt really reveal itself this day, i was trying to keep pace ahead of a storm that came out of nowhere.

once i got in the mtns it looked like i would be clear. random meadow so common in the white mtns


was getting ready to fish this little lake on my way to black river when the storm caught to me, 10 mins after i got there the winds picked to at least 30mph, its started raining and the temp dropped to mids 40's i'm guessing. i can deal with that, but with out being able to cast, the lightning striking less than 1/4 mile away helped me make the desision to get outta there



needless to say, i couldnt cast in those winds, cold and some rain i can deal with, so with my plans seemingly put on hold for a while i hi tailed it out of the area to see if i could get out of the storm and make other plans.

little grove of aspens i thought the tiger looked good in front of


everything cleared up once i got west enough, but now i was out of the white mtns and away from the fly fishing i came up for, so i decided to put a cap on it and head home for fathers day.

black river, i will return soon.

Hey 2 Spot, here's a thread about Motoflyfishing:http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=894025

I really want to get more into this, and I happy to see some local ADVer's into the same concept. Maybe a trip to Lees Ferry the back way?

tiger

I have a 1997 Tiger, you are more of a man than me, I took it off road once and said never again, too top heavy but makes for a great road bike!

I am interested in what you are up to in making your own bike, something light and fast? I also have a bmw 650 gs that seems light next to this bike, but it isn't!
Thanks,
Dave
