Arizona to Alberta

Left this morning on a ride from Scottsdale, AZ. My plan is to travel thru Utah and the NE corner of Nevada and then up thru Idaho and Montana to Glacier National Park and into Canada to see Banff and Jasper. My idea now is to return thru Yellowstone and Jackson Hole...but I'm going to kind of play it by ear.

Outside Flagstaff


Vermillion Cliffs



Marble Canyon



Lees Ferry




Zion National Park

Great trip! I lived in Great Falls, MT, for a couple of months and loved it! I'm actually from a small town in Northern Nevada called Ely...nice rides, but nothing there!

Fantastic photos and beautiful bike! Looks like you're covering lots of miles per day, be sure to slow down and enjoy. Are you traveling solo? Thought you were going to meet up with friend/brother? Look forward to following your progress, and seeing you again this fall/winter in Scottsdale..
