    Off 59. Look or the Smithsonian sign. Comes out in Rockville. Some side roads worth pursuing. Ghost town of Grafton as well.

    Great place! I first went to SG in '86 for golf, when nothing was around. I started taking my dual sport to the area shorty after that, I've seen the growth and it does amaze!

    Still, some of the best golf around!!!

    Thinking on either a short ride today up Kolob Terrace and back via Smih Mesa - 30 mile ride. Or a long ride up Kolob Terrace all the way up to Black Mountain Road East and back south toCountyn Road 89W7T, NFork County Rd, Mt Carmel Jct, Pink Coral Sand Dunes, Colorado City, Hurricane -160 mi.

    Ran up to Kolo Reservoir where the road was barricaded (kinda expected). Watched a guy catch three trout in 10 minutes. One 4 1/2 lbs - fly fishing. Back to Smith Mesa Road and back to town via Smith Mesa.

    Great ride with Gpsdualsport yesterday. Caliente and beyond. 249 miles for me from Hurricane. Thanks Dan.

    A LOT of dirt!

    After a recent health scare, RRR paid me a visit.

    Nothing like good friends to bring up your spirits when you're going through crap!

    Great seeing you RRR,

    I certainly hope the rest of your travels have went well. Watching the weather, it was looking a bit dicey where you were headed.

    Hope all is well!

    We look forward to an update, if possible.

    Thanks again for coming by!:thumb:wave

    I was just in STG, my daughter was canyoneering and the SO and I riding MTB.
    We did Thunder Mtn and most of the virgin river trails out of Hurricane. The weather was great and all the flowers were coming out. I saw a group of about 10 D/S bikes with Quebec plates in Springdale.
    Hope everyone is on the mend and otherwise doing well.
