Susan’s parents decided the desert life wasn’t for them so we packed up their fifth-wheel and back to California they went. Before they left, her dad offered to traded golf carts so we traded my classic gasser for his more modern electric cart.
Who got the better end of that deal?
We also got a chance to see the last race of the season at our local short track. They will be starting up again in January so I am sure we will be heading out to the track for more then.
Short track racing.
Today I went on a 20 mile ATV ride. We trailered the machines down to Parker and headed for the hills from there. Some of the ride was calm but we got into some pretty hairy stuff.
The use of tow straps were needed and a lot of finesse in some spots. At times we were heading down the trails at close to 40 MPH. What a wild ride.
Here are a few photos, enjoy.
Getting ready to ride
One of the mines we came across. One was a turquoise mine.
Time for Lunch
Horse head canyon.
Came across an old grave site. I think it was one of the miners.
Where's everyone going?
Life in the desert. These are descendants from the burros used by the miners.
There are two sheds loaded with core samples taken from the mountains when they were building the water lines to supply water for Los Angeles.
