    Went out with some of my Arizona Trail Rider brethren for what was supposed to be short and intense loop around some new to me trails at the Boulders OHV Area near Lake Pleasant. The players:

    EsconDeasy - KTM 530

    We wandered along some sweepy two track to this, the first of many, many hills of the day. At least this one was wide. Pammy heading up.

    Pammy doesn't always make it on her first try, but she sure is determined!

    We took a short break and Jerry made some adjustments to his new 350.

    Jerry takes the long way.

    I asked EsconDeasy to come down this hill behind me for a picture. He tried extra hard for a good shot.

    HOLY SMOKES! That's quite a predicament!

    Pam and Chad ripping it up!

    EsconDeasy smashed his foot on a boulder. Checking for damage.

    We decided to call it a day and take the quick way back to the Wild Horse Saloon for BURGERS!!

    The saddle between the two peaks just right of the subject has some great stuff, with a great climb up the left peak. Some of the hardest stuff we found was in that zone. Can't wait to go back in Feb!!

    Thanks for the pics!
