Day 26 – Show Low up R260 towards Eagar

Another awesome night, this time at the Timber Mesa Fire Department. The guys took us in and really looked after us. We couldn’t slide the Pole but got to wear the Helmets, I had the captains. We started a little later than usual but not to much and it just meant the sun was out in force already.

We both were feeling good and started off good. We had decided last night after chatting to the Fire boys that the R260 up and over the mountain is heaps better for views and was only around 5 miles longer than running the 60 so we went over the hill. It was a great road and hardly any traffic. We went through a couple of Reservations and into Apache county, Not a lot out there but so beautiful.

Our AWESOME crew again were awesome and each time we stopped which was about every 10 miles they had everything spread out and waiting. We are so lucky. Pat sipping down a IPA beer and some Salt & vinegar chips here. He was happy as.
