We went out on the Frontage Rd—heading up to Picacho Peak for an out-n-back. spin. The Frontage Rd is also called the Casa Grande Hyw. We know it was the old Army Supply and Patrol Trail and then it became the old stage coach line.
Heading South you get a pretty nice tailwind—and you must enjoy it while you can because on the return it will be an in-yer-face headwind.
There’s a DQ there by the Peak and we’ll turn around and come back. I have been told that the stage coach stop was nearby. I’m not sure exactly where but we are on the same route they would have taken.
We got to about Red Rock and decided we would turn around. The wind was really picking up—also, Wing needed to get back by 9:30 to have time for an appointment.
