I went to Queen Valley on Saturday, and did the full Montana Mountain Loop for the 2nd time. I updated my Queen Valley topic in the Southwest section with lots of cool
photos and information, but here are some extra photos.

Parking areas were jam packed today.

Spent the last week in the Mojave desert. Visited most of the major attractions. Fish Rocks, Pinnacles, Schmidt's Tunnel, Bickel Camp, Dirt Diggers Memorial, Borderline Bar Memorial, X-15 Memorial, and the Husky Memorial.

There were a lot more people there than expected. It was great to get away from everything for a week.

Man that looks way to slow for me I might fall asleep going up those roads.
X3 is shorthand for Mach 3!!
Like its distant cousin the SR-71 Black Bird speed is a need and slow is a no go!! Ha ha.

You can see the family Resemblance in this photo

Two days north and south out of Williams. Next week three more.






I spooked two bull moose in early velvet ran no more than 30 or 40 feet in front of me moving at speed and four females same thing a bit closer. Beautiful animals.

It looks like the Williams area may be an excellent summer alternative to the dusty Cinders area in Flagstaff?

I went to 2 different offroading areas on Saturday, and one turned out to be a huge surprise. See my NEXT post for that one.

First I went to the Belmont Mountains, which I have written a separate topic on in the past. But this was the first time I got some photos of the non-popular, hardly traveled western trail that I discovered, which actually makes a 26 mile loop with the help of the powerline road to connect the 2 trails.

The issue yesterday was the place was deserted. Here it was only May 2nd, and all the activity I saw in my 4 past rides was gone. Except for passing 2 Jeeps driving together on the main (eastern) trail, I was alone. I knew this would be the last time I'd be there this summer if it was going to be this deserted.

Here's a photo looking ahead at about the 20% point of the western trail:

After winding around some mountains on the very interesting and exciting western trail, here's a photo looking toward the pass (in between the 2 mountains) you need to cross over to get to the "other side".

Going through the pass and over the ridge, still on the western trail, you can at least see the way to get back to the main trail by veering to the northeast. BTW that's Wickenburg's Vulture Mountains in the middle distance to the left. But the Wickenburg location I talk about in the next topic is not in the photo, like not even close.
