The Eagle took us around mountains
and through towns
for two hours from our rv park outside Congress AZ to Cottonwood. We stopped for lunch at this 50’s diner before riding to the city park for the Thunder Valley (bike) Rally which opened Wednesday and runs through Sunday. We were shocked to find that the Rally was just setting up!. One guy we asked said that the park opened for tent campers on Wed. and Thursday (today) bikers were encouraged to show up to (self) tour the area. The Rally opens Friday afternoon. Huh!
It’s a good thing that we always enjoy this ride—both ways. Away we flew enjoying the ride in the cool upper altitudes snaking around the mountains
and across the upland valleys.
Back at the Weaver Mountains (Yarnell Hill to the locals), above Congress, we enjoyed our ride down on the upper road while viewing the lower road up. (Think about it, it’ll come to you.)
With the iconic Vulture Mountain in the distance, the ride from Congress to the RV Park was very hot.
Fortunately, it was only about 5 miles.
Duane plans to return on Saturday if anyone wants to go.
