A couple of friends in side by sides joined me on my quad for a fun filled ride in the rain a while back. It was an extremely rainy day especially in the morning.
I had planned to take them to see an old mining operation but when we arrived all of the old mining equipment had been cleaned up. We decided to explore some new areas and headed north. Eventually I found a great new (to me) trail that headed further north toward the Bradshaw mountains. As we climbed up into the mountains we could hardly see because the clouds closed in on us.
About 3 hours into our ride we came across a large mining operation but there was no getting into this one. The entrance was gated and locked.
Just past the mine I realized we were near the town of Black Canyon City. Since we were all wet and cold we drove into town for a bite to eat at Bylers Amish Café. The hot coffee and homemade chilly really hit the spot for me.
Back on the road we found a trail headed south of town that would make our trip a loop so we took it. It was a much shorter and easier trail than the one that led us to Black Canyon City but we were all Ok with that as there would still be some cool things to see.
As we got back close to our staging area the rain finally let up some so we decided to take one of the trails that is in a normally dry wash to have some fun.
