Great ride report.....

This was really a great RR up to this point and another one for my bookmarks. Thanks for the effort that it takes for something like this. It's been so interesting and now I want to go there too.

Thanks! Glad you're enjoying!

Dawn comes to the canyon...







Pre-dawn, I should say. The clouds are getting it, but it's still pretty dim down here..



Just a bit of sunlight kissing the rocks, and bringing out the colors in the landscape..



Me? I get to work kissing a cup of coffee..





Looks like this place got hit by a giant yard sale..

Camping at The Wedge Overlook was one of my goals for this trip. I'm glad I did it and hope to do it again sooner rather than later.

Back on the dirt road, Buckhorn Draw Road, to be exact, I have another spot stuck in my head that I'd like to investigate..



Lots of you are familiar with this area..













Thus far I have seen no snakes, knock on wood..



Across the road, the namesake Buckhorn Draw..





It's beautiful there, and to think I was never more than 20 miles away from either a town or I-70 at any time..

I Loved Buckhorn Draw Road.
I surprised that we can still drive it for Free!

That may just be my favorite road in the world. Just a nice, easy ride through some jaw-droppingly ridiculously gorgeous scenery.

I did, for sure. Technical problems aside, there are no bad times on the motorcycle out west.
