    200 riders from across North America converged on Prescott, Arizona for the Arizona Trail Riders Howlin' at the Moon AMA National Dual Sport ride this weekend.

    I took around 700 photos over the two days. You can find all of Saturday's ride and party pictures here:

    We couldn't have had better weather. Rain late in the week provided dust free trails and October temps with highs in in the low 60s enhanced the excellent routes this weekend.

    Saturday started with a full moon at sunrise.
