  2. Right before all the wildfires sparked up ... I completed a day loop back around Pinyon Peak. We completed an overnight around the same loop last Sept, but in the opposite direction. So with clear air in the forecast to guarantee awesome views ... off I went.

    With the rain starting to fall one would expect moral to drop, but in this case the opposite was true. The rain seemed to transform a section of road I have only had the privilege to pass in the dustiest of conditions. With proper gear worn and water on the road .... the experience was .... different ... and almost refreshing.
