Before the real punishment began

So.. Back in the desert..

Did a huge loop yesterday with a couple of guys I met here... Ended up going up into a canyon none of us had been before..

Ever had one of those days that ends HOURS after you’d thought it would? That involved hauling motorbikes up over giant ledges hours after dark? (Only to drop down the other side, cross another creek and be confronted with *another* ledge system that you’ve got to lift/push/haul the bikes over...) Where one guy is both mentally and physically bonked and is close to curling up in the sand and crying?

Too. Much. Fun!
