This was kind of a last minute replacement ride for a WMAT DS I had originally planned. Because some of us already had the time off I put together a two day Payson/ShowLow ride on routes I had never ridden but just found on Garmin Topo, Google Earth, and FS maps. The plan was to stay South of Hwy 260 as I've always wondered what was there, especially after the Rodeo Chediski fire. Turns out a whole bunch of good riding is whats there, Day 1 turned into a 160 mile day and Day 2 120. Here's a few pictures from the ride. The players were myself, Eric Blatt, Dan Poole, Terry Madman Zechman, and Pete Markmann Colcord Mtn fire Tower Canyon Creek Fish Hatchery Canyon Creek Black Canyon Lake Along Black Canyon Lake road The Rodeo Chediski burn area trying to come back to life. A home that did not survive the fire This is an example of the roads we found. We rode everything from graded bladed to quad trail. I love Google Earth :) This was a lot of fun and we found some very cool routes for future rides.
