    Left this morning on a ride from Scottsdale, AZ. My plan is to travel thru Utah and the NE corner of Nevada and then up thru Idaho and Montana to Glacier National Park and into Canada to see Banff and Jasper. My idea now is to return thru Yellowstone and Jackson Hole...but I'm going to kind of play it by ear.

    Great trip! I lived in Great Falls, MT, for a couple of months and loved it! I'm actually from a small town in Northern Nevada called Ely...nice rides, but nothing there!

    Today was Ketchum, ID to Kalispell, MT. The ride thru the Sawtooth National Forest was incredible...but cold. On to Glacier and Banff tomorrow.

    Left Banff this morning and rode thru Calgary and then south thru Waterton Lakes National Park and the eastern edge of Glacier. Ended up in Butte. VERY windy the whole way.

    Fantastic photos and beautiful bike! Looks like you're covering lots of miles per day, be sure to slow down and enjoy. Are you traveling solo? Thought you were going to meet up with friend/brother? Look forward to following your progress, and seeing you again this fall/winter in Scottsdale..
