The Way Home. Days 1, 2 and 3
|So, let's see. I spend four days at the races. Rode down to Southern California
with a guy who now blames me for his addiction to attending MC races (I took Gary up to Laguna Seca for his first race)|
Then I spent a couple of days visiting my sister before heading home.
It was July, and I was heading out through Vegas, so I started off at night. It didn't help much.
278 Miles to Vegas
|On the way out of Vegas I had to stop for a little commemorative photo.|
|Into Arizona. Along this route you are not in Arizona for very long (Hwy 15).
It was already starting to heat up for the day.
|So shortly there after I was in Utah.|
|This is just before the entrance station to Zion National Park.
Luckily for me it was now starting to cool off again.
|Entrance station to Zion.|
|Zion was beautiful. Unfortunately there were not many places to pull over for pictures..|
|It was a very simple two lane road with no shoulder. So I stopped where I could and took pictures.|
|People who were riding two up had it covered. The passengers had the cameras out and were snapping away.|
| Mount Carmel Junction for Lunch.
I stopped short of asking who the "HO" was who made the pies.
| After Lunch I headed to Hwy 12.
At this stop between Escilante and Boulder I found someone's camera bag. Do you notice it in the picture?
It had three nice Nikon lenses in it. I took it with me, trying to figure out how I would get it back to it's owner.
A little further down the road I can upon a local cop who had a fellow rider pulled over for speeding. I gave the bag to the local sheriff and I ended up riding with the other motorcyclist (Phil) the rest of the day.
|A stop at the Capitol Reef National Monument book store.|
|Glen Canyon region. I took several pictures out here. This is one of the best.|
| Phil's and my bikes, again in the Glen Canyon area.
P.S. It was very hot out here.
|Phil and I continued to ride together until our stop for the night.|
In the morning we were going in sperate directions.
625 miles for the day
| Final day home.
I had over estimated (or under) some times and now I was down to one day to make it the rest of the way back. As such, This was the only stop for a picture on the way home
Wolf Creek Pass
542 miles for the day
|As always, a great way to spend your vacation. On your bike.|
Only problem this trip was the one driving award. Other than that a great trip.
I am already looking forward to next year.
The GPS said I did a total of 3752 miles, and I know I did not have it on the bike for any of the running around we did on race weekend.
