I'd love that (living there) at least for 6 months of the year. Maybe in February..... Thank you! As far as going UP Shafer it was done twice during our stay, a couple of days apart. The second time I remember thinking, "WOW I don't remember it being this steep!" You only need pay attention during the assent as the surface has lots of that fine powdery silt / sand in sections including the "humped" off camber corners. If I was going down I would not be carrying any speed into the corners. Other than that I would just pick my spots carefully, if I met another vehicle, to get around. Traction was good as the surface is hard, even under the dusty sections. No problem even on the porkiest of bikes. That said I'd skip running the Goldwing up or down it, unless you have a brass set..... Potash ponds shining in the distance. Canyon Lands Park below. Potash Road the thin line below.
