Winter has found its way to our new home in Payette. Christmas is now over so time to load the bikes in the PU and head south. Decide to start our trip by riding around Las Vegas. After several hours of driving through snow and ice covered roads, we get far enough south to get out of the snow. We get to the Vegas area by mid day Thursday. Time to take a short ride before heading to or motel. Start here. Kodachrome Road Lots of bright colors along this road. The south end of the road comes out onto this main road within sight of Vegas. We turn away from Vegas and soon find this road. Red Needle It is hard to see in the picture, but you can barely see the Henderson in the distance. Rock formation near Red Needle Little bit of steep and rocky Lava Butte We then take Rainbow Garden road. White Eagle Mine. Not much left except a hole in the ground. We then take this road which should take us back towards the truck. Before long we arrive back at the truck and head towards town to check into our motel. We head out to the "Strip" to look around a little as it has been a few years since we have been there. View from our room in the Rio Friday morning. We leave on todays ride from the motel parking garage. Had a really nice ride today, but it is getting late and I will work on that part of the report later. Stay tuned for Fridays report.
