I looked out my windows after I got out of bed after sunrise and saw 2 other campers, the most i have had at this spot this year.
I checked the tracking for my FedEx delivery of my new debit card and it is out for delivery. Cool. Life will be good after I validate the new number.
Today i decided to go long alone riding just b4 noon. I parked @ the library off Dry Creek rd. My route was: Dry creek rd, lower lizardhead, chuckwagon, gunslinger, mescal, deadmans, aeries, western civ, last frontier, ledge n’airy, pavement back to library, 22 miles in 3hrs, climbed 2584′. Big Sedona ride. Trails out of west Sedona are not as technical as trails down out of Bike and Bean. Another beautiful day down in the red dirt.
Suffered first Sedona fall on the last few feet of dirt ridden today. Just b4 the sidewalk the trail snakes thru tree brush. Hidden was a broken off juniper tree trunk. I missed seeing it although I knew it was there from riding in the opposite direction. Hardly walking speed my right grip found a strong perch that wrestled the handlebar out of both hands and slammed me onto the ground. I landed on previously cut dead brush that lessened the fall. I scored a 4″ gash on my left forearm. The bleeding stopped quickly. Back @ the library I cleaned up in the restroom digging the free flowing warm h2o.
Drove down to BnB. I picked up my new card. I used it @ a Chase bank paying $3.00 service fee just to learn if card would work b4 I used it @ grocery store. Card worked and groceries paid for I headed to Beaverhead for the night. Windy rocking my house.
