First real off-road trip

I made my first real off-road trip with the Jeep today. I went from Mayer, Arizona to Cleator (and back). There is just an unbelievable expanse of land in the Bradshaw Mountains that opens up on the trail with a great view of the desert and the pasture. Also saw my first roadrunner today, but was kind of disappointed that there weren't any Acme products in sight. I get the feeling the Warner Brothers lied to me as a kid.
"But why, some say, the moon? Why climb the highest mountain? Why fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas? We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard."

You'll see roadrunners all the time :-) We saw the big horned sheep in Box Canyon near Florence a couple weeks ago on top of the canyon walls. Very cool.

That's awesome.

I used to live in Mayer, graduated High School there. (A long time ago!) I loved it. The trip from Mayer to Crown King was always fun. There was a ton of places to off-road. Wow, I miss it.

I saw a couple road runners while visiting family a few years ago and not one of the went meep meep.
The butcher backed up into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work.
