New Tag

Tag Shot:

XC Rider - Harley
HBurgNinja - Burgman
Skippii - VStrom

CLUES:
1.) This is one of the best-known scenic attractions in this mountain state and very popular with rock climbers. XC Rider has a zoom shot of climbers
2.) The Tuscarora Quartzite here is approximately 250 feet thick and composed of fine grains of sand laid down 440 million years ago.
3.) This is a summary of a story written about this location:
"Princess Snow Bird, who had grown to maidenhood in the shadow of the rocks and scaled their heights many times, proposed a contest to her father, [Chief] Bald Eagle. She would climb to the crest of the rocks as prospective suitors followed. The first to take her hand would become her mate. Bald Eagle agreed,
and at the end of the climb, of seven suitors, only one remained, the others having turned back from fear or fallen to their deaths. From their lofty perch, Snow Bird and her future mate surveyed the surrounding realm of the {clue deleted} that would be theirs to rule one day."

Shot from Parking Lot


This tag requires you to ride up the road that crosses the bridge.
Stop at the turn around area by the gate where you see the "No Trespassing" sign

If a VStrom, Scooter and a Harley can make it...so can you

Once you get to this spot - walk over to the truck and look in the left headlamp(check out the possum in the cage on your way)

Grab the Block Head as part of the tag and deposit it at the next tag location. This also lets folks know if they've been bruced. Its sorta like Bacon...

I know the general vicinity, though not the exact road. Beautiful riding in that area. Great choice of locations. Shame that I don't have time to do a ride that long for a few days. I doubt it will last that long.

This gap road is clearly the only way to ride through the rocks...
If you do the math it equals 9.3333333......

Oh holy crap - it is also on street view!

Wish I had more time to ride out to that area, you guys have some cool local, natural terrain to tag. I've been checking out the valley-tags and trying to figure out where they are just for the heck of it, I'll get one, hopefully, the next trip out there.

That pic of BlockHead had me laughing. How'd you like those grapefruit size boulders in the road?
