Idea for a SW weekend ride
« on: October 29, 2016, 09:22:35 pm »
With Halloween upcoming how apropos. I've always been fascinated with old historic graveyards. Standing there looking at a headstone from 1905 and wondering how life was there and then. Have been to some of the East Coast cemeteries going back to the 1600's where the stone was so weather worn you could barely read them. Have been to several here in NV. The true definition of middle of now where. Was thinking of sewing several together for a weekend ride. Friday through Sun. A flower sniffing and historical tour. Stay a different place each night. Lot's of places to stay. Beatty, Tonopah, Pioche, Virginia City, Ely, Caliente. I would suspect that the same can be done in CA, AZ, UT, CO and NM. Thought's? Any interest and I'll try to knit a route together.

  Lots of old graves in Skull Valley just outside of Prescott AZ, nice riding in the area as well.

Sounds interesting!   Thinking this fall?  Or this a spring thing?  Alas, my 12 day ride to Big Bend has used up my available budget for a while...
