I was down there last Thursday through Sunday as well. Conditions were close to perfect.

Here are a few teaser pics.

Your's truly enjoying life:

West side of Factory Butte:

Looking north towards the Swell and Little Wild Horse Canyon:

Crossing the Muddy River:

Behind the Reef trail in the Swell:

Overlooking the Dirty Devil River drainage between North Hatch Canyon road and Poison Springs Wash road.

General route was south from Price, through Buckhorn Wash, Black Dragon Wash, Green River, South on Airport Road through Robbers Roost area to Hans Flat Ranger Station, down Flint Trail switchbacks (we were the first people down it this year....covered in at least a foot of snow), south to Sunset Pass, west to North Hatch Canyon road to the crossing of the Dirty Devil River (turned back due to too much water flow), backtrack, then south to Hite and Lake Powell.

We then went south on Highway 95 to the Blue Notch Canyon turnoff and road down to the shores of Lake Powell intending to make a loop up and out of Red Canyon.....turned back after we lost a camera. Backtracked up the highway, over the south tip of the Henry Mountains for the night. Next day north to Hanksville, then Caineville,then north on the west side of Factory Butte (awesome route), to the Muddy River, past Temple Mountain, west on Behind the Reef Route, north along Red Canyon all the way to Eagle Canyon and camp for the night, and then home the next day along the west side of the Swell, and back to Price.

I'm heading to White Wash next week for 3 days of riding the real dirt bikes, but this was really an awesome trip and the weather luckily cooperated for us.
