Very interesting ride Dave and Matthew.....thanks for all of the time that it takes making up a RR. I really enjoyed your part in it Matthew since you really did a good job. Thank you for writing and also for your really good photos. By this time, you're already back in school I guess.

Stunning pix!
Isn't it great riding with a son?!! I just completed my journey in the Rocky Mountains with my son where we visited and camped in many national parks and at the end hiked 5 days in Grand Teton Park.
Way to go!

Maybe we even were at North Rim at the same time:

I've only used Panasonics, but they are rated pretty middle of the road. Get whatever one you like, because in image quality they are all pretty close. Try dpreview.com for the best reviews.

I had to look that one up since I haven't read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I didn't realize the similarities. I should probably read my first philosophy book, huh?

Dave, It's a classic read but I reckon you seem to be doing just fine on your own and you don't need any guidance!

As for the motorcycle maintenance part of the title, riding a KTM as you do, well.....on second thought, you might wanna take a look!

Great ride report that's brought back a few memories. The North Rim, to me, is a great place to visit. Awesome photos!

Matthew has a great eye for photography. Keep up the good work and hope you get to ride your own bike back one day soon.

Great report

What outstanding photos. Did you enhance them with a photo program? Also I see That you must have been a member of the 101st airborne,when and where. I served as a company commander with the 101st in Viet Nam,great unit and history to be proud of. Thank you for your service in advance.
