Southern Utah (Now with more pics!)

Had a chance to ride some of the canyon lands of southern Utah this weekend.

It's a stunningly beautiful place.


But, it can be a little chilly.

F*** your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside.

Man, I am jealous! I was there about 16 years ago with my family, camping with my kids, etc. Now the "kids" are 28 and 25, time for me to back on my bike! Or any bike!

Was in Monument Valley, 5~6 years ago. We camped at Gouldings Campground and took day trips to some fantastic scenic vistas.
Would LOVE to go back...

nice ride

Looks like a great day in the saddle. Here on the other hand, if it doesn't stop raining soon, I'm gonna have to attach pontoons to the side of the bike, just to get down the road. When da heck is this gonna stop !??

Just your average western vista, he said jealously. Some guys have all the luck, I suppose you found a place that sold beer too.

Indeed I did, and would you believe they sold wine and cigars as well? It's the land of milk and honey, I tell ya!

My last riding weekend out here in Vegas starts today. After work, I'm heading back to So. Utah, through Zion National Park, then I plan to hit both the north and south rims of the Grand Canyon. I'll try to post some pics when I get back.

When you are at the Grand Canyon, don't forget to take the long way around to the otherside. Evil Kneival told me that going straight ahead was dangerous.
