April 22nd Box Canyon AGAIN!
The ride we did here on April 17th just wasn't enough to get Box Canyon in Wickenburg out of my system so I posted a planned ride again for Wednesday the 22nd of April on AZ Back Country Riders Dot Com.
What a neat bunch the members are on that site! Can go for a trail ride and make new friends almost anywhere in Arizona. Just have to cash in enough cans for enough gas money!...
We met at the parking area about 9 am and headed out by 9:30. Mocha had been there the week before so was more relaxed and it was a pleasant ride.
The forecast was calling for low 90's temps so only 2 members showed up.
One of them (in the green shirt) is local so I can count on her to join me just about anytime I want to ride in the Wickenburg area. The other on the elegant bay (the woman with the soccer ball on her head - Lol) traveled from 2 hours away ! She had never been to Box Canyon before and was not disappointed one bit~
Will have to do this again!!
We rode a little farther up the river than we had the 17th. Found a nice shady spot to rest and munch on snacks.
We didn't stay long before turning back. Was a good ride with no mishaps and I was even back at home by 2 PM.
