By Uncle Hans

We just got home from a whirlwind, weekend trip to Phoenix.  Renee has an Aunt and Uncle and 4 cousins and a brother and all the families to visit.  We spent a lot of time at the poolside in "85 and sunny".....


  ....we also rented a big Harley and spent a day travelling around touristing.  This was an old mining town converted into a tourist trap.  Luckily, they had a tavern, but the steps to get into there are kinda like a sobriety test. 



This shot is some of the rest of the town.  The camera does not seem to get out of the pocket as much as it used to.  Maybe I am getting old, but you have to take it from me, there was some cool scenery.

     We went up the road toward a place call Tortilla Flat.  The road was narrow and twisty.  This bike weighed 400 lbs more than our bike and Renee was uneasy about the combination.  We came around a sharp corner and found a gaggle of people and bikes on the side of the road.  There were many long faces peering over the side, looking down.  We decided to turn around.  We will see Tortilla Flats another day.

     We met two ambulances on the way back to town.  The first bounce was 150 straight down.  I doubt there were any survivors. We have head enough of motorcycle accidents for a long time...........
