Here are a few highlights from our weekend KLR camping trip. The bikes were awesome, the weather was fantastic. The first day was crazy windy, but sunny and warm on the ride out of town.
The fully loaded KLRs were great for off road exploring. This trail was a tricky mix of loose gravel with patches of loose sugary sand. We had to be ready for anything and it was a fun ride.
I had never seen sand dunes like these and really liked this area. I half expected to see Indiana Jones leading a line of camels somewhere in the distance.
The wind shipped the sand up and it drifted around like snow we remember from a very cold place.
The strong, gusty wind added some challenge to setting up the tent, but it was tough enough to stand the wind. The warm, sunny day ended with a clear, cold night.
It is amazing how much the temperature changes out there. But, wearing an extra shirt was small trouble to see an amazing sunset and to watch the last of the day fade to darkness behind a distant ridge.
