Cave Creek Wash Trail








Those were goatheads behind my bike. Checked the tires carefully before mounting again.

This is how you get into the "hole" ... a twisty descent carved into the sandstone.

Such beautiful pictures. Four years ago we hiked and toured Arches, Capital Reef (our fave too), Bryce, Zion and the North Rim. Then the Mrs slipped and broke her wrist 4 miles up one trail, which prompted an impromptu flight out of Las Vegas back to Seattle and a trip to a hand surgeon. I would love to take our bikes and retrace your route because it is all so gorgeous. Thanks for sharing

You should! The riding and scenery out there is amazing. I'm still coming down to earth after my first tour in years. Gawd, I love touring. Here is one from our climb up Cedar Breaks. The leaves were just starting to turn at 9000 feet.
