    RR: El Camino del Diablo

    Fatbikes, sand, borderlands and no communication with the interwebs for 3 days was absolutely amazing. Mark and I set off from Yuma to ride the El Camino del Diablo, aka Devil's Highway, to Ajo in roughly 2 1/2 days. Per usual I took a boat load of pics and we thoroughly enjoyed our time traversing one of the more remote, rugged and unforgiving landscapes around. I can't wait to get back out there sometime.

    Heading south out of Yuma. This was one of the few deep sandy areas, but it didn't last long.

    Very very cool, I've been meaning to drive the route, but a ride would be even much more of an experience! Awesome reading the report, thanks for sharing.

    Thanks fellas. It really was an incredible experience. It's funny how some rides in certain locales don't need to have singletrack to be rewarding on a mountain bike. Death Valley was another such place. I'd love to ride both again.

    One of our states greatest attributes is the ability to ride all year round, and ride just about anywhere due to all the public land. Great stuff, this trip.
