Here are a few shots from my favorite ride, from Green Valley to Gardiner Canyon mostly of USFS roads and trails.



I took these on the way back (coming downhill) as one wants to keep momentum when going uphill and traversing these "steps".









And, the picture below will give you some idea of the smoke from the fires around here; looking into the valley where I live.

Unfortunately, this happened on the paved road returning to town; I'm not sure if it was a bike or a large scooter. I went back and turned on a powerline road and then went down a drainage to get around the roadblock around 11 a.m. Below is from the Green Valley News:

"A local man died and two other people were taken to a Tucson hospital Thursday morning following a traffic accident on the road to Madera Canyon.

Green Valley resident Peter Farnum, who was driving a motorcycle, was killed, a family member told the Green Valley News.

Farnum's wife, Sandie, a passenger on the scooter, was transported to University Medical Center, as was the driver of the car that also was involved in the crash, said Green Valley Fire District Battalion Chief Brian Wilford. That driver, from Maryland, is a member of the military.

The crash on White House Canyon Road occurred about 10 a.m. Thursday, and took down some electric power lines, igniting a brush fire that GVFD crews extinguished, Wilford said.

Members of the Sahuarita Police Department responded to the accident, as did the Pima County Sheriff's Department and TRICO Electric."
