Always a Swell time- Winter Desert run 2012.
 
5 Attachment(s)
So Shawn Cardinal and Daniel Linn have been talking the desert talk since getting back from Outlaws 2011. I'd show them areas during a few Happy Hour get together's, and a date was set. We headed out last Wed. Camped at the old town of Sego before spending the rest of the weekend in the Swell. Other than a bent rim and a majorly crappy drive home sunday due to ski traffic, we had no issues.

Enough with words, on to the pics:

After a long drive west, and a stop in Gleenwood Springs for lunch, we ended up at the old town of Sego for camp. This was the old general store for the town.

It was a lazy trip with no major agenda, other than a good time and lots of R&R.

We stopped to check out the many Indian writtings that can be found in Sego Canyon.

After a hearty burger at Ray's, and another stop to stock up on wood, we headed to the Swell. Here, we turned North at the intersection for Highway 24.
