Breakfast the next morning was at PJ's. Another decent dining choice. After filling the fuel tanks, we started on the Utah section of the TAT.
We took a small detour to the Colorado border so we could officially be riding the width of the entire state of Utah. We didn't want to shortchange ourselves by just a mile or two.

Temperatures were warming quickly so we stopped in LaSal, Utah to hydrate. While we were there, we met a nice couple who were touring on their Suzuki Burgman 400.
They had left Virginia, ridden to San Francisco, and were now working their way back home, camping as they went.
Temperatures cooled as we left LaSal and climbed north into the LaSal mountains, the second highest range in Utah.
Here, you can barely see Patrol Dog down below.
Dropping in Moab and we were hungry for lunch and thirsty. We stopped at the Moab Diner before leaving town. Green River, Utah would be the next stop.
Shade was precious in Moab with temperatures over 100*F.
