Saturday, June 29th That’s right, Han! This is a motorcycle site gol darn it! I had a mission for the morning. Since “Oklahoma” is mentioned in the song, I wanted to have some choices for the picture to represent it. I already captured the Sacred Rain Arrow a couple of posts ago. Today, I wanted to add an iconic picture of the Gloss Mountains to my quiver. I’d been thinking of returning since we’d ridden through there a couple of days prior. Justin would be joining us as we headed west to see if we could find a place to take a good picture. Our only option was to go on the “lease roads” that the oil companies use to access their pumps. I’d never really been up close to one and they are bigger than I thought. Rocky had an itchy trigger finger on my camera, which I really appreciated. He got a lot of good shots through the process. Google made this little panorama for me: I found the position that I wanted, but it would require me to take Annie out onto a little ridge. I probably wouldn’t have tried it on my own, but I had some good muscle to help me out of any tight spots. I think we got some winners: My only exit strategy from the spot was to have very capable and helpful friends. It probably took us ten minutes to heave Annie backwards. We were laboring under an intensely hot sun, but my happy helpers were still smiling. This little outing was both very unnecessary and very enjoyable. I guess you could say the same thing about my trip in general!
