This is a photo essay of my trip today. I have a Whizzer I got a month ago and have plans to use it so am making progressively tougher trips out from East Valley of the Sun (Phoenix/Mesa Arizona). This is actually the turn around point of my trip today. I started at 6AM with 325 miles on the odometer and ended about 10:30 AM with 407 miles showing.
This is 10 miles away from home. I actually wanted to be at the trail that goes along the Superstition Mountains by now, to miss the sun in my eyes but was slow leaving. I have some great memories out in these mountains that fosters legends and stories. I once was on First Water Trail on a Mountain Bike. A friend and I had spent the night camping in the Wilderness and were battling the trails that had been torn up by horses riding in the rain. Trails were dry now but with 6 inch and deeper ruts shaped just like a horses hoof. Well we got asked to leave the wilderness area because of a new law that prohibited bicycles and hang gliders in Wilderness areas. He wasn't lying as I went to the forestry office and looked at the regulation book that had these to obnoxious forms of mechanized transportation penciled into the rules at the appropriate place. Below the Apache trail lies about 10 miles farther east looking out from about Power Road and University Road.
