Valley of Names

Decided on Sunday to try out the roof rack and gas can I picked up on a easy local trail to see how it would hold up. I orginally had a shovel on it but bungie cords don't work to well. So I threw it back inside.

Valley of Names is just north of Yuma on Picacho road heading towards the Picacho wilderness area. It's a little side trip off the main dirt and in a spot or two the trail fades a little bit and splits off in other directions. Basically, all the area is about a mile or two of desert that people have arrange rocks to spell names.

Here some of the photo's:

The rack (shovel was still attached in this photo)


The area:






Some random photo's of the area:




Had to take some of my 4runner.



The basket setup held up pretty well, even at highspeeds on gravel/dirt (washboards) roads and had very little wind noise at 75 on the highway. Somewhere along the way I lost one of the screws so the basket started bounce around.

It's treating me okay. I'm getting a little tired of the desert and wind down here but overall not bad. Just wish I was closer to the Phoenix area so I can run to the Flagstaff and surrouding area easier (miss the mountains and trees).

This Friday I'm heading to Sedona for some camping and some offroading for two days.

The typical Broken Arrow

Oak Creek Homesteed, Mingus Mountain Loop/Goat Peak trail and or Smiley Rock (Van Deren Cabin if I can find the trail, couldn't find it last time).

Would do Rattlesnake Canyon but it's a little out of the way.

Yeah I think I will pull a leaf out of the pack by the friday night, a little to stiff and a little high in the back. I do need to find a rock or two to make the tires completly wore out. T I may want to join you on a few runs if I can get away, I will PM you my cell.
