. I'm heading out that way this Spring so I'm going to put this on my to do list of things to see. It's about thirty miles off I-17 on Bloody Basin Road through the Tonto National Forest isn't it? It looks like you took Cave Creek Road at the junction and came to the bridge from the North and came out on Bloody Basin Road. Anyway, thanks for sharing your four day trip with us.


Yeah, do the loop. I think coming in via Bloody Basin and descending east to the Verde, then exit south to Cave Creek is the best way to see the views. Either way, it takes 3-4 hours of slow travel to get there. I didn't air down my tires this time because my compressor died, but it's a good idea for the rocky last ten miles.

Great photos of your family exploring the desert. I imagine having someone jumping in and out of the truck to get pictures of the rig as you traveled didn't speed things along but you got some nice results. Thanks for sharing!

I'm pretty quick, plus, ten miles took two hours, so it's not like we were travelling at much more than 4-5mph at times. Ughh, not a fan of slow, rocky stuff with a TC.

Fantastic photos, wow. Great looking trip too. Still waiting for some to show up on my phone but I couldn't resist scrolling in through those not displayed yet. Very nice!

I would love to see your photos, but unfortunely none of them are showing up, once again problems with RV.net. I will check back later to see if the problem has been corrected.

Alex, the problem is not because of RV.net. The problem is that Trackhead needs to reduce the size of his photos. Others, like myself, have limited bandwidth, and loading times, that make it difficult for loading large files. To combat this, if you really want to see the photos, wait until your file stops loading and go back to the individual picture black square and right click on it, the pop up gives you the choice, Download Picture, then it should download as it is not trying to download the entire series.

Trackhead you might try keeping the photos posted here, from your hosting site, below 700kb and break up the posting to a smaller number of photos in multiple groups, rather than one single burst. Not everyone has a dedicated line from their internet provider to upload and download large files. It is all a learning process. Your photography is exceptional and your composition pleasing. If you could, adjust the file size so many of us can download your trip reports, that would be a kind thing. While limiting the size of the photos is the product of the hosting site, RV.net, the poster still has control over the resolution, which in an internet world is limited, it is just a waste of bandwidth.

I sized them to 640 per the guidelines, and even exported them from the editing software at a meager 800 width. Sorry it's not working out.

You can see them on my blog at modernmongolian.blogspot.com

Thanks for the suggestions, I'd already tried everything you pointed out and nothing worked as a results it was my belief something wrong with the website again. Since last logging in the OP must have resized them for I can now view them.

trackhead, excellent photos of your back country adventure and one that I'm putting on my bucket list.
