Rode Ocotillo Wells

I rode Ocotillo Wells last weekend. Pretty cool. Looks like it would be a lot of fun with a group. It made me feel like I was riding on the moon. With gravity of course.

Take care and ride safe,
Brian

Double checked. Still too far. ...but holy shit that sounds like a neat place!

Quote:
More than 85,000 acres of magnificent desert are open for off-highway exploration and recreation within the boundaries portrayed on the park map are operated by California State Parks, OHMVR Division. Outside the boundaries, to the south and east, large tracts of BLM land (U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management) are also open to off-highway vehicles. The western boundary and part of the northern boundary connect with the 600,000-acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, which is closed to off-highway recreation, but open to exploration by highway-legal vehicles along established primitive roads.
(heh...large tracts of land)

I went to ocotillo a few times and thought it was boring, then I went with a group that had been going there for decades, showed me a lot of hidden features, you can be on a trail and see nothing but flat, yet within 100 yards there can be a dry creekbed that is 5-10 feet deep , you wont see it until you are on it, but go down in it and its like a bobsled run that doesn't end and you ride up high on the walls around the outside of every turn
