Pictures from the K1600 gathering in Alpine.

I rode through Safford and ran US-191 on the way to Alpine. ADOT is re-paving the section between Safford and Three Way. Had to wait about 20 minutes for the pilot car.





Along the way on US-191, there's a cave at the side of the road. It is now officially the bear cave as people have started to leave stuffed bears inside of the cave. There's actually 4 stuffed bears in this picture.



The distance between the Conoco station in Morenci and Alpine is 90.1 miles. It took me 1:54 to complete the distance. Averaging about 47 miles per hour.





The group at dinner Friday night. You want fish and chips? We ain't got no fish and chips.



On the loop ride Saturday, I took 2 detours. The first up to the old gold mining town of Mogollon. Two years ago, the road in the center of town had been completely washed out by a flood. It's fixed nicely now.



Here's some windshield shots of the road down from the town. It's about 15' wide and very steep.







At the base of the turn off to Mogollon





The other detour was to the Catwalk. It is a walkway through a narrow canyon. There used to be a wooden walkway bolted into the rocks that also carried a water pipe for the mine further down stream. Now there is a steel structure.









A sign of the times. Near Safford.



Thanks to Jim for setting this up. Had a great weekend.

All told, I rode US-191 6 times in the past 10 days. I'm going to declare that a world record until proven otherwise.

To rotate from the Win10 file explorer, select one or more files and shift right-click to get a rotate right or rotate left option.

Otherwise, open them with whatever photo editing program you use and there'll be a rotate option. The Win10 built-in program is "Photos" and there's a rotate button near the top.

It's not a Win 10 problem.

Actually it is a Win 10 "problem". Win 10 pays more attention to the EXIF data in the picture (which indicates how it was shot on the phone). So Win 10 Photos tool autorotates based on the EXIF, but most forums ignore the EXIF.
Fixed now, refresh if you already looked.

No it's a problem with the EXIF data not being correct (mostly an Iphone problem) Anyways, nice pics.

I want to thank everyone who attended this past weekend's ride and get together. We had a total of 10 riders from several states, Arizona, Tejas, Colorado and California. I hope you all had a good time and enjoyed the roads and views of Eastern Arizona. I know the restaurants left a lot to be desired. If we do it again I've already got an idea to make that better. Special thanks to Brian for the pictures you posted, I was remise in taking any.
