The forecast was entirely too nice for the previous 4 days so I bailed and did some exploring with my youngest son. I'm working on a ride report, but here are some "rub it in" teaser photos of an awesome 4 days. Bonus points if you can name all the locations:

What great time with your son. Those are the times he will remember the most. I hope do some rides like that with my daughter. How old is your son?

This is my youngest son and he is 12. He loves this kind of stuff and is a great riding partner.

Awesome. I had the location and that river crossing right just forgot the name. They caught some of the rain and snow down there, nice to see its passable as I'll be attempting to cross that river with some buddies in a week and two days...!

Great trip / ride report... :)

Nice.

I used to take the family to Moab every Easter. My daughter asked if we could go this year.
Made me realize what a baby I've turned into. I told her it was too much hassle.

Good on ya for taking the time to spend with the little vermin while they still like you.

anyone have a spare rear axle shaft for a 2000-current KTM EXC, mine has a small crack in it and I figure these have got to be laying around...

A shaft with a crack, isn't that a Hermaphrodite?

Fiche says they are only $40, less if you find a discount.

Ahhh....Havasupai, nice! Did it many years ago (1989 to be exact). I was in a cast up to my shoulder. Wrapped it in a bag and did some cliff diving. That was before the big floods that wiped out many of the pools.

Combining it with moto sounds like a great way to go.
