A great day for a ride.

It was a great day for a ride. Six of us left the park at 9 this morning for ride east through the Salt River Canyon to Show Low on Highway 60. The ride through the canyon has numerous switchbacks as the road descends to the bottom of the canyon and climbs back up the other side.

After lunch in Show Low, we turned west towards Payson. The highway cuts through a beautiful pine forest.

South from Payson through the Tonto National Forest to Apache Junction. About 320 miles.

We got back to the park in time for cocktails and a neighborhood weenie roast.

320 is a long ways for a day ride, congratulations on no report of saddle rash.

Keep up the rides, there must be at least three other good routes around that winter wonderland. You need to locate a seat to fill the seat behind your normal sitting position on the HD.
