You were invited, should of gone and taken you own pics

























:laugh: just kidding

We left from Redlands (wifes Grannies house) Ran east on the 10 to the 62, up into 29 palms. Then cut across to the sheephole mtns, and Bristol dry lake to Route 66 in Amboy.
There we checked out the local produce at the Amboy Shoe Tree





From there we ran out to the AVI got rooms, some pizza, and met up with the rest of the group for the movie Avatar. Some sleep, breakfast, and gas.

We hopped on the trail where it crosses the Needles Highway, and let some air out of the tires.



promptly made a wrong turn and ended up here.



I had heard about some petroglyphs that were off the trail but near the start, so I made a guess and viola

After leaving the petroglyphs which are at Granite springs we headed to Fort Piute, and Piute springs




The fort and spring are in the canyom across this valley, which is 16 miles

Since the rd is actually a centuries old Indian trade route, once you get into Piute canyon there are tons of petroglyphs.


Then there are the ruins of the old fort



The big room is the stable, with the room beyond it being the kitchen. The pictures are taken from the barracks.

Since the road is a foot path past the fort. You need to backtrack and head south to go over another pas to get over the Piute range.

Then head out across Lanfair valley


There are a few homesteads out here.
Check out the bus service

Man that bus driver looks familiar

Well, so far great pictures. I really wish I had the time and money to head into the Southwest. Maybe after school. I can't wait to see the rest of the pics.
