As Arizona isn't letting me do too much remote riding I head further north to Utah, the plan is to ride to about the center of Utah and then hang a left. And the first view of the state is a good one This is Cottonwood Canyon Rd looking down towards Kodachrome Basin A normal diversion here would be Bryce Canyon, but having been there a few times and making a point to avoid people I carry on north I head a little east to ride Johns Valley road and then jump to the FR441 dirt road, nice fast dirt that starts to climb somewhere along this route headed to Torrey, I bump into a couple of cowboys looking for a lost bull, lucky for them I had spotted him about 5 minutes before. I was in an area called Boulder Flat or something like that up around 11,000 feet. The older of the two cowboys asked, "where are you headed?" "Torrey!"...cause there's a gas station there... "This section rarely gets used and the tracks are sometimes hard to see, its more of a snowmobile area now, but to get to the track you'll need to carry on to Torrey, its that way."...and he points vaguely in a direction ...but follows up with, "It's about four miles if you can do it in less than 15 or 20 I'd be surprised, once you get into the boulder field around the corner you zigzag all over." They are about to ride off after I thank them, but they stop and the old guy gives me a few words of cowboy wisdom, "you know, I used to ride a lot of single track when I was younger on an old Maico, it's tough but fun. Let me tell ya son if you want to ride serious single track easily...(he pauses for effect)...get ya' self a horse!" He does a loud belly laugh and takes off. After 18 miles I find the trailhead leading to Torrey, back on the GWT, he was right I went all over trying to find a way through, even considered sleeping up there.
