Desert Riding on Black Friday

Spangler Camp – Cantil, CA

It is Black Friday and the last thing I want to do is go shopping. Fortunately, some friends of mine went out to the desert to go dirt bike riding and invited me to come on out. I did not really take a lot of convincing. I loaded up the Charger with Buddy and my Canon and headed north on CA Hwy 14 out past Mojave to Cantil and an area known to the desert bike riders as Spangler Camp.

It was sunny but brisk, but nothing a campfire or jacket could not take care of. I enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time with friends and to practice my action photography. I even found a nice set of wings that appear to have come from an owl. Too bad they do not like to cuddle as the wings were actually softer than the fur on a cat.

Motocross Races At Sturgis

Sponsored By the Jackpine Gypsies

What many people seem to forget is that the Black Hills Rally and Races was first conceived by the Jackpine Gypsies motorcycle club in 1938 and it was about the races. Well, to be accurate, the first time had just one racing event with nine participants. One might suggest that after 70 years of rallies (they missed a couple due to WWII) that the event has grown substantially.

When I first started riding motorcycles around 1968, it was on the dirt and motocross was my thing. When Tanya and I were coming back from Deadwood I decided to take a detour to the motocross track and try my hand at some high speed action shots. I think I did alright. If you see yourself, a friend or family member in these photos and would like a higher resolution copy suitable for printing and framing, drop me a line and I will send one to you, no charge.
