Here are a few more pictures of our departure from Camp Verde yesterday. I always love to show some of the terrain we cross, the highway part was a very short part of the ride.
I am sure you see the Mayor (Tony) and Bill Dean leading our group. I think Bill has ridden virtually every square inch of the area and Tony knew many of the trails as well. In route, we were taken into a hidden canyon. We also saw Indian ruins from old dwellings and caves with dark soot in the ceiling. Not sure if it was from kids hiking and building fires or if it was years old.
We leave for Strawberry, AZ in the morning. It will be a 25 mile ride across mountains but at there will be a road...not just trails.
Take care and love to all;
