Blog 33: Some Camping and Riding and all around fun.

+++

Ok, so Laguna Seca Day 2 gets bumped back again. But I really wanted to put up these beautiful photos and some video I took this weekend.

CampScoot 2012. The 10th anniversary of CampScoot, a scooter and camping weekend held every August. Camping and riding and general craziness up in the Jemez Mountains near Ponderosa, New Mexico. The Jemez (Haymez for those looking to say it correctly) Pueblo area has some amazing Red Rock. And Friday’s ride to Tunnels is one of my favorite rides of all time. I could do that ride everyday.**

But we start with some nice Red Rocks photos.

+++

It was cloudy and spitting rain a bit…but dang that rock and dirt is such a pretty color.

+++

These photos are taken after our Tunnels ride and heading back to the Campsite. 

Tunnels Video will be added at the end of the post.

+++

Probably my favorite.

+++

+++

I reluctantly left the Red Rocks to get back to camp. I could have taken Red Rock photos all day.

+++

Campsite. No running water….but 5 kegs of beer.

+++

My set up…the Truck is very versitale…carries the bike on long trips and also is my tent “floor”.

+++

New Mexico has some lovely rock formations.

+++

Indian Sunflowers. Wildflowers that bloom every August.

+++

+++

And the City Commuter goes Off-Road….just a bit.

+++

+++

+++

Sunset Friday…This photo makes it look like nobody was there, but everybody is over by the kegs.

+++

Tunnels ride. We usually have more riders, but it was a good group.

+++

My favorite scooter accessory.

+++

Why this ride is called Tunnels.

+++

A nice part of the Tunnels ride is the creek at the turn around spot. COLD, but refreshing. Josef saying ‘Hi.”

+++

Long video of leaving campsite to go on Tunnels Ride. I was staying back with Shannon…It was her first ride since being hit by a car and totaling her scooter. She was going a bit slow and nervous, but got much better after a bit.

+++

Continuation of the Tunnels Ride. Shorter video. This takes us to the turn off to the Tunnels. We almost lost one rider who missed the turn…but I waited just long enough for them to see me waving.

Some nice red rocks. The helmet cam doesn’t do it justice.

+++

The actual road to Tunnels. GREAT RIDE. 10 minutes long, but, if nothing else, please watch the last few minutes.

+++

Leaving Tunnels. I left first so I could stop at the GAS STATION on the way back. Wanted a soda. It seems to always rain on us at CampScoot. Crazy. We are drier than heck all summer and then CampScoot comes along and we get rained on every ride we do. It is almost a tradition now. 

I forgot to clear my camera memory…so I run out of space half way through the ride back.

Till Next Time…

**I need to get the Brammo People on this ride. 17 Mile drive was nice…and great to do as they don’t let ICE motorcycles on it…so that was very cool…But I love this ride. It is much more awe-inspiring than the video shows.
