SCHOOLHOUSE MESA--We didn't ride all the way to Fenton Rd., we turned off at Schoolhouse Mesa and rode to the top. It overlooks La Cueva and some tent rocks as well. We had ridden about 11 miles at this point--all of it uphill and in gravel...well I guess I should also mention the loose rocks and sand. Oh...and washboard. It was uncomfortable riding uphill...riding downhill I did my best to keep my speed below 15mph, but the bone-jarring washboard, the loose sand and rocks, the rutted gravel...well, frankly, I thought it was kinda dangerous.
