Great times...
It didn't start out to be such a long trip, but before we knew it a month had passed. We stayed the first two weeks at Walker River Resort. What a great place to get in some desert riding. We went to Bridgeport for the fireworks on Independence day. It was a short but sweet display. Here's a tip if anyone is planning on going next year.......take insect repellant, the mosquitoes are hungry there.

We then moved to Glass Creek near Mammoth. What a great place to ride. The temps. were perfect and we even got a few thunder showers to settle the dust. If you haven't been there.....go.....you won't be disappointed.

We put hundreds of miles on our quads and even after a month, none of us wanted to come home.

Great times...









Wes

That is seriously cruel and unusual punishment. Here I've spent the last month stuck in my house recovering from foot surgery.....

Looks AWESOME, glad you all had a great time!!

Oh Wes...you're a brutal guy...post pics in JULY of a place like that! It only been in the 110's here, and we just got back from our trip to KM! I guess this is the time of year where you get to FLOG us for the heat!

Glad to hear you had a great time...too bad we weren't a little closer with the time & location...we'll have to meet up somewhere soon!

Sean

Quadhauler....Yikes, foot surgery . I hope you're back on your feet and can get out and ride now.

Don...I can't wait to say "welcome home" to you buddy.

connor2002...Until this trip, a week was our longest stay at one time in out TH. Now I'm spoiled and want more.

2BH...Walker River Resort is dog friendly. Like you posted, the sign only applies to the grass.

learnem... as 2BH and ocdune posted, get some dirt toys....too much fun.

acjjkamp...It's too hot here too. We had to travel to beat the heat.

Sean...I wish you could've talked your group into making the trek to Glass Creek. There were more people from So. Cal. there then anywhere else. It is a lot further drive for you then me though.

We have to pick a time and place to meet.......

Wes

I think you're around 300 miles from Glass Creek. It's just about 175 miles from our house.
