Round Trip trip to AZ

OK... here's the chopper... custom built by Ben the Baker... an Ohhh an Ahhh machine that turns heads everywhere .... this is really why we went to AZ... to bring it back to CA .... yeh,, he is going to pad the seat... otherwise the ohhhs and ahhhs will be for a different reason :-)

Here is Baron, ready to hit the road

One of the reason he's so anzious to get going... notice the storm brewing up there on the top of Slide Mt

It was foolin' round.... it was moving in with determination .... finally 2 feet of snow dropped after we left

Further down the road... just into CA east of the Sierras ... leaves were making their last stand

From Hwy 395 we took a short cut over to AZ

Up the moutain and then we dipped into Death Valley, finally arriving at sea level .... we had a picnic lunch at Stovepipe Wells

Leaving Stovepipe Wells it was all downhill to the center of the earth ... well, at least as deep as we could drive from this point

Notice the elevation here ... we are almost as deep as it goes

would you have imagined... an oasis at the bottom... and a golf course

Arrived in AZ.... loaded the chopper and left .... shortly we made our way over some hills and headed down into a hole in CA.... 29 Palms coming up

Our route took us around LA, over the grapevine to the Bakersfield area where we turned West and headed for the coast.... very interesting country... went thru some mountains... saw a deer which was too fast for me to dig out the camera and shoot..... but this guy just stood there staring

Finally we pasted a wide vally... about 75 miles wide... and had to stop at Santa Margarita to fuel up

pushing on we finally reached the coast .... could not wait to get to the beach after all that desert

The last leg of the trip was up hwy one..... right on the coast ... waves... clfts... trees

There it is.. final destination..... thanks for joining us on the trip
