Great stuff so far!
we're only going to disappoint you.
I see your tag line and...
There was most definitely no "shreddin'" on that route.
I'm sending you a PM!

Day 6: 6/27/12
Salina, UT to Green River, UT back to Salina 249 miles
We got up bright and early the next morning and had a quick motel breakfast
(bagels and coffee).
Today was going to be a special treat.
Black Dragon Wash, Eagle Canyon and Cat Canyon!
One of the best days of riding on the TAT, and this time we were going to do it without luggage.
Unfortunately, we would have to slab all the way to Green River to start the trail...
It was a pretty morning, though.
Look! Eagle Canyon!
I had to hurry to snap a pic as we rode over the bridge on I-70.
If you’ve ever ridden Eagle Canyon, this is a pretty neat view.
Isn’t this gorgeous?
Spotted Wolf Canyon rest stop.
Got fuel and a subway sandwich to eat later.
oh, I also got a pair of cheap sunglasses (my old ones broke in Pioche).
Leaving Green River, we bypassed all the crap near the old dump (where everybody gets lost and/or stuck on the railroad tracks).
Instead, we got on Hwy 6 and got off where it crossed the TAT.
This part was as silty and gravely as we remembered...
Turn off to black dragon wash (mile 147)
Entering the canyon...
We surprised some hikers right about here...
Heading towards the petroglyphs
No bags! we didn't even feel bad for cheating - this was our 3rd time in BDW (had luggage the other times).
Last time, the asinine comments in the guest book turned me off so much I didn’t sign.
This year, Matt did the signing.
I missed this one earlier - dog or wolf?
The second from the left is my fave.
It doesn’t look bad in the photo, but in real life, this part of the trail was pretty torn up.
Some screen captures...
I’m always surprised by the greenery in here...
Everybody loves this guy (hi Rob, hi rider914)
Meeting some new favorites?
It’s not all rocks, there’s some straight sandy sections, too.
I think this is a good place for the video...
Don’t forget you can watch it in HD (720)!
After that section, there are a few more rocky spots.
And then you climb out of the wash.
That was fun!
