Slide Show

I want to first say how important it is to cover your head not only with a hard hat but a sun shade. I got sunstroke well riding out on the trail and it took a couple days to feel a little better. 

Today we did the Black Mesa trail from the first water parking lot up past the entrance to the Lost Dutchman state park. A follow horsemen Alan Gillman from Utah picked us up in camp at 10am and trailer us up to first water. Very scenic trail that takes you by Weavers Needle so the views are unbelievable. 

We rode out of First Water past the First water ranch.

This trail is not for the faint of heart there are a lot of ups and downs and some edgy stuff. You must have a surefooted animal to ride through here. 

Beautiful scenry

We met these hikers on the trail 2 of them were from Canada

This picture gives you an idea what kind of trail we are dealing with lots of rock surfaces.
