This ride took place this past weekend in the back roads of Munds Park, Arizona inside the Coconino National Forest. The view is at the end of the Thomas Point Trail, and it looks at 89A Call of the Canyon and Cave Spring Area
This time my wife was with me, and she very much enjoyed the ride as it was mostly smooth with some rocky spots and we even saw come wildlife along the way (cows! – LOL). We continue to explore the area and my equipment! – You will notice less shaking on this one as I used a Dragon Action camera (an inexpensive GoPro alternative) which worked really well — (My biggest issue with battery life – but easily fixed by buying some extras)
This ride was about 1 hour 45 minutes round trip and the road ends with a beautiful view of 1400 feet above 89A Call of the Canyon and Cave Spring Area and where we were standing was about 5800 feet elevation.
