Everything you need and nothing you don't to make it happen.
Skirting rural UT... This guy is proud of his rack.
Beautiful... isn't it?
Suicidal paraglider outside Provo, UT
Voted the least fun city
in the nation.
Two sure ways to kill a Tiger-1050-induced adrenaline rush:
Road construction and traffic backups.
I've heard being a rancher is too much work.

Getting off the beaten path...
... to Teapot Lake where I bonded with nature for a night @ 12K feet.
Return to civilization.
I don't know what this place was about. Really. I don't.
One morning I woke to Flower
outside my door.

A few views between southern Wyoming and Price, UT
, the best of which is along the west side of Flaming Gorge (north of Vernal)
and the Ashley National Forest.
Q. What's better than that?
A. More of it.
Needing a break, I discovered this cool abandoned outdoor theater...
... with excellent parking and seating.
No one there to play, but I swear I heard ghostly folk music...
Or maybe it was the sound of a windswept mountain top road calling?
Utah route 72
. 50 mph.
Zoom. zOom. ZoOM!

Shoud've packed a fishing pole.
