Day 13 - Sedona - High Line, Baldwin, Templeton, Broken Arrow, llama trail
Today I drove from Cortez to Sedona - I decided not to ride any trails in Cortez as the weather forecast in Sedona was not looking great the next day so i wanted to do a longish ride in sedona before the rain hit.
I headed along slim shady from Oak Creek Village and up the High Line trail
From the End of Highline i headed down the Baldwin trail and then along the creek to the Templeton trail
I almost rode over this critter on the trail
It was getting dark as i got onto the templeton trail
From Templeton i headed along HT and then up Little Horse , and then along the llhama trail
From llama I headed back to Oak Creek Village after doing a circuit of the big park.
Sedona is one of my favorite night riding locations - not must opportunity to get lost and so far i've never felt as if any big critters are out there that might eat me..
Day 14 - Phoenix- Pima & Dynamite
I woke up to find that is was raining hard in Sedona just as had been forecast so I drove down to Phoenix . I wish I had that option back in here in England !!! - the weather has sucked ever since i got back from my trip
It was sunny and warm down in Phoenix, BUT in my Humble opinon the trails really have been messed up by making them official - nasty wide boring tracks when there used to fun single track. I did find some nice trails when i headed east and north out of the official browns ranch area
When not on the dull official trails there is still fun riding to be had out there
As I had my old GPX trails I did check out some of my old favorites which have been dug over at their starts and found that some of the trails still existed - maybe one day they will be brought back into use...
Towards the end of my ride I spotted a few Tralatulas on the trail
Even after the dissapointment of finding that many of my favorite old trails had been trashed or replaced with sanitised boring rubbish, I had found enough good singletrack to have a good time out on the trails in this area. I had to leave earlier than I would have liked as the interstate to flagstaff was due to be closed for blasting out new lanes. Back In sedona It was still raining.
