Easter weekend I had the opportunity to take a camping trip with my local riding club the Tucson Freewheelers. They were headed to a New Mexico state park called City of Rocks. The plan was to leave Friday, spend Saturday exploring the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument, and then coming back Sunday.

I arrived at the Triple T Truck stop around 8am. We weren't supposed to depart until 9am, but if you show up early you'll usually find a few members having breakfast and you can shoot the breeze until everyone arrives.
Omar's Hi-Way Restaurant. I met a few guys there and ordered a egg bagel sandwich for breakfast. It's not listed on the menu, but they'll make it for you if wink the right way at the waitress. (Translation - Someone else ordered one and it looked realllllly good. So I ordered one and that's when I found out it wasn't on the menu. No pic's sorry. I'll get one next time.)
Soon the rest of the group showed up.
Jerry's Restaurant. Here's the cast and crew of this motley band. Roger and Steve, both with the decked out Goldwings.
Tucson Gem and Mineral show.
Soon we were back on the road and heading east out of town.
Roger liked to snap pictures while on cruise control..I know not safe..but if he hadn't I wouldn't have gotten this nice shot in his rear view mirror with Mount Graham in the background.
To be continued.
