Another Utah Backcountry Discovery Rider Solo UTBDR
It's been a couple of weeks now so I thought I'd post up some pictures of my solo trip to Utah. I rode the UTBDR from north to south ending up at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. I was on my '09 Wee-Strom; and starting on St. Louis, made a loop across northern Missouri, southern Nebraska, northern Colorado through Rocky Mountain National Park, then on to southwest Wyoming through the Flaming Gorge, over to the Idaho/Utah border were I began the trip south on the UTBDR. I’ll post a few pics here and if anyone wants I have over 600 pics and some videos on Photobucket. I’m not sure if I should post the link here so if you’re interested in seeing more just PM me. I will follow up a little later with some more pics. Disclaimer: As you can see, I am not a professional photographer.
A resident of the Rocky Mountain National Park
Rocky Mountain National Park 31 degrees.
Not sure exactly where but somewhere just west of RMNP.
Echo Valley
On the road to Echo Valley camp ground. I was the only camper there. I got stuck in sand up to my rear axle, and had to dig my way out.
Flaming Gorge I do believe.

In spite of your disclaimer, you have some great pictures there. I recognize the location of most of them, but when you get time, give us more detail.:clap

A few more from UTBDR

Not 100% sure but getting closer to UTBDR

The aspens looked like they were on fire just after a brief shower and with the wind making the leaves flutter.

Great camping but I was a little concerned about bears as there was bear $hit everywhere. Never did see one though:clap

Again the aspens were at their peak and with just a little rain it really made them pop.

At the start of the UTBDR

I think I know these 4 guys

Valley of the Gods. No words do it justice...

Valley of the Gods and some old guy I do not recognize.

Is this near Kremmling, CO? I remember the gap in the mountains from my CDT trip this summer.

I wouldn't bet money on it but I'm thinking Flaming Gorge. Yes I was there, but stupid old brain has recall issues.:huh
