    After the Monsoon

    I got out on a local trail just after a rather heavy rain. I found bunches of water in places where there is usually none. Weird for Arizona to see running streams where usually there is just bare rock. I biked a bit and hiked a bit and really enjoyed the scenery.

    Hope you do to.

    Anywhere you see the bike it is pretty much stopped in the middle of the trail.

    Wow! That must've been a lot of rain! Did you have any problems with flooding around town?

    Az whereabouts

    Enel, I'm from Az - born in Yuma of all places. Where do you call home? That could be in the SE part of the state, or a few other spots I can think of.

    You have to love water in the Desert, and that heavy monsson season feel especially.

    Thanks for the images.

    Great job on the photos.

    Your camo paint job is so good I can't even see the bike in some of the pictures.

    i cant see your bike frame

    your frame bust be camouflage, all i see is 2 tires I kid...

    Nice pictures... I was up there last week, the nice guy at the LBS told me that copper canyon road / trail would be a "fun little ride"... Fun yes, little... not so much. somehow ended up on iron springs on the other side of town, cant wait to do it again. Can you recommend other trails up there? Looking to kill 4-5 hours 20-30 miles.

    late!
