    TR: Gallup and the Zuni Kingdom

    Past Shiprock.



    Zuni Mountains. Navajo spoken at the trailhead. Trails reminded me of the complex at McNary-Pinetop.



    Forest roads in the Zuni Mountains.





    Surprisingly rideable.



    Halfway up Tsoodzil.





    Grants. Quite the dump. Like, the entire town looks like this.



    High Desert Trails, Gallup. Part Phil's World, a little bit of Santa Fe.

    Cool. I stopped in Gallup on the way back from Durango. Fun trails!

    How did you like the Zuni Mtns? I was going to stop there too but a big thunder storm rolled through.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    I did the 24hrs of enchanted forest race thing in the Zuniís a few years back. Kinda cool how a forested area pops out of the desert. Great XC type ripper trails. I really liked the place some for reason. Itís not worth a dedicated trip but a great place to ride if passing through.

    Just chiming in to confirm Grants is indeed a festering shithole......Nice pics.
    What we have here is an intelligence failure. You may be familiar with staring directly at that when shaving. .

    I did 21.5 miles and only had 1,834 feet of climbing. It's flat, smooth, and soft, with occasional little patches of slickrock. Relaxing and scenic.

    Nice TR. Looks chill. And that ground cover looks ripe to flash with one spark.
    Chokin on smoke lately makes me think that way, I guess.
