A Pleasant Valley… While trekking along on Geology Tour Road in Joshua Tree National Park, we stopped at Pleasant Valley Trailhead to take in the vastness of the desert and enjoy the peacefulness of this place. What you can’t tell from the photograph is the bone chilling 16 degrees and the wind that felt like it pierced right through your clothing.
This video is from Georgia Wranglers trip to Ouray Colorado in July 2017. Our fourth and final day of wheeling saw us doing Governor Basin and Yankee Boy. Yankee Boy was quite the show stopper for us. It was the end of the line of adventures for TANK.
The end of the year will be here before we know it! 2017 has been a great year for us and we are planning on ending it and heading into 2018 where we love to be – on the road!
In just two weeks, we will be leaving Georgia for another grand adventure. It has been in the planning stages for about three months now, and I have been researching places, roads, trail conditions, and overnight locations. While we will not be camping on this trip, we do plan a few off road excursions in various states. In fact, we will be crossing twelve states, and visiting five National Parks and various other Monuments, and National Treasures. The list follows:
- Tonto National Forest – AZ
- Joshua Tree National Park – CA
- Mojave National Preserve – CA
- Grand Canyon National Park – AZ
- Zion National Park – UT
- Bryce National Park – UT
- Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument – UT
- Capitol Reef National Park – UT
- Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park – AZ

You can keep up with us once we hit the road. I know that we will be doing daily posts here and/or on our Facebook page.
Today we merge our two websites together. For those that know me, knew that I ran Henry S. Estes Photography HSEstesPhotography.com where I posted much of my photography work. New post will happen here on www.WanderOffroad.com website and blog. We have added a new page (which links offsite) to our www.WanderOffroad.photography website. You’ll still see the same great photography you have come to know and love from me, as we repost and revisit some of the existing content I had on the other site, along with new videos and stories of our travels.
Please stay connected, as we have many more journeys to take and share with you.

Yesterday we hit up Talladega National Forest. We did an impromptu ride over to Alabama to ride some of the roads through the National Forest. We didn’t make it all the way through. We started on the south end and ended at Mount Cheaha.
