Chocolate Mountain Trail

Chocolate Thunder is one of the great new trails in Johnson Valley. At last weekend’s Tinbender Rocktoberfest a small group of us had a chance to run this great new trail. Check out the video I shot ….

I've decided that even though Wrecking Ball has been known as Wrecking Ball since day one, I'm gonna start calling it Rob Halfords Revenge, just cause I don't like the original name.

Awww man, you get me all excited thinking y'all are comin out this way! If you ever want to visit the "CHOCOLATE MOUNTAINS", just a bit further east of Gamis and the Empirial dunes, drop me a note. Got a great little rockpile here that my wife and I call flattop. I think you might find it a challange, and plenty of other unexplored country! Email me at kkingersoll@yahoo.com, (not the email in my profile) if you're ever out this way (Yuma) and looking for something new. We'd love to host any Ftoys on a trail ride in "our" desert. : )
