I wish it was 500. It's 600 plus gear. It reminded me several times. I never claimed to have the brains in the family.

This place would be like playing on the moon. Ryman is doing a little high marking.
I didn't want to be the one to tell him Trackhead went about 30 feet higher.

I'm not familiar with gang signs... I'm sure these must mean something.



Ryan really wanted this for his home garden. Kept looking at my tail bag
trying to figure out how to get i in when I wasn't looking.



It's off to Eagle Canyon. They asked me if I knew where it got it's name.
I look around, shrug and say "no why"? They pointed out the obvious. Duh.



Great, more sand getting to the wash.



The boys had gone ahead while I was taking photos. My leg was pinned by
the exhaust. Lucky the sand was soft and I could work it out.

More gang signs.











For God's sake take the photo. I can't hold my stomach in any longer.



Kev under I-70



Photographic proof the Tenere is larger than a semi.





Most of this section Kevin would tell me about the next section. Maybe a little worse
than what we have bee doing. Sandy washes, some ledges maybe only 15 miles
of bad stuff..... About then I had decided I had had a pretty good sampling of sand and
washes and asked if there was an exit route since we were so close I-70? They made me
go up one last bad hill and let me go.

I have to admit I was so happy to to see slab I wasn't paying the best attention. I turn left onto
I-70 and opened the Beast up. Hitting triple digits a car was coming in my lane he swerved
over and I'm doing the "Fooking idiot" yell in my head. I go about another quarter mile and notice
another highway on my right. I was going up I-70 on the wrong side of the road.

Blushing I cross over the dirt medium to the other road shaking may head.

That'a a fun place to drain some fuel out of your tank. Even better when the hot shit moto-x guys are there flying all over the place.

Awesome Pics! I knew I would be famous some day.
I glad you had the sense to bring the camera!
I can't believe you went racing down the wrong side of the freeway!
Great Ride!

Yep, enjoy your 15 minutes.

It really was a very fun weekend. You two are great guides.

I have to give you and Kev some blame on the freeway,,,, you did tell me to
"Just turn left right there"

From this angle it looks like the child is on the bike.

In case anyone is interested in more pics from a 3 day southeastern Utah adventure last week, the ride report is here:

Somehow my first post had totally screwed up image links and now I can't modify or edit it so just scroll down.
