Oddometer: n/a
One of my best friends lives in Price and I've been all around there - great stuff

Next time I'm coming up on the bike! It'll probably be in the spring, but maybe we could get together for a bit of a ride? Yeah, I know I have a road bike but I figure you know some good pavement, too

Thanks again for posting all these pics

Lots of pavement , to be honest, don't really ride that much dirt but enjoy the "easy" backroads for the places they take me (and really like the lack of traffic)

Thanks gentlemen-

Before I continue with the latest, I must inform you that I am in very good spirits this evening, as I have learned Ledgendary Master Blues Bassist
SHORTY GILBERT is commin to town this week, Pats BBQ on friday , backed by some locals "the salty cracker band"

Shorty is a small statured man who has an amazing touch on a big bass, and was blessed with a huge voice-- was Howlin Wolf's bassist for many years. Catch a show if you can- this man IS the blues

Went into the middle of the park- backside of grand wash

Loving the pics!

Great pic- the 'reef/swell is bizzare, and seems to have hidden gems everywhere

great state !


That sand can really jump up and grab you - it will look just like the hard pack (same color, etc) and by the time you see it, all you can do is add throttle and lean back

Into Capitol Gorge- sorry, the light was fading but you'll get the idea



Some crazy wind/water erosion patterns




Back into the sunlight




More ancient art


One lane road ends, becomes a path along the stream bed




Pioneer/settler roll call




Sun faded fast- as did I, was way past dinner time.
Tomorrow, the road home

Sunday AM, headed home from Torrey-

Up over hwy 72 (no pics worth posting)-

Hit Hwy 10-
Old wood chapel in Emery


to Huntington and Hwy 31


Electric Lake







Cleveland Lake just up the road- much of the drive was kinda brown, most of the leaves had fallen, but this was beautiful




Looking down from the top


from there just slabbed it home, but not before an unexpectedly great lunch at the junction of 31/89 in Fairview.
The Home Run Cafe was a great diner for cost and friendliness- the food tasted fine (scrambled eggs/hashbrowns/biscuts).
SHould also add here (failed to in yesterday's report) that the Burr Trail Grill in Boulder was also outstanding . The burgers/sandwiches are truely top tier- but the dutch apple pie (local apples) was wonderful. SHould absolutely be a part of the trip round the trail.
Happy to give the local eateries my nickels.

Thanks for hangin out with my ramblings.

Nice ride, Signal, as always. So interesting to see some of the "northern" scenes in our state. Tons of variety. So different from the southern Utah topography.

Agree with your approach to the local eateries. Always worthwhile to search them out. Part of good riding experience! Give me a heads up if your travels ever bring you through St. George area.
