    "'Elo Kiddies" :D

    Been too long again, my apologies

    From today :clap- beautiful , dry, upper 50's with a light breeze off the big stinky lake...

    Mr Salty said "go west"

    Off out to Promontory we went

    Haven't seen the spiral jetty thing for a year or so, and heard the lake levels were down, so headed out that way

    Did I mention the water levels are low :lol3

    The Jetty thing- usually under water during high to normal years, has at least been wet the last couple years....NOT today :huh

    West from the jetty out to the lake

    Thanks Bomose-

    No question Capitol reef is under rated, gets over shadowed by some of the big brother parks around here

    Don't know if I've mentioned this in this thread before, but my wife and I met you at Hurrah Pass in 2012. We were on an '04 950 Adv. You were there in a jeep with your family and I believe your inlaws. It was good to meet someone who inspires some of my trips.This pic is from that day.

    I remember it well, we were in jeeps, with the whole fam-damly
    My oldest son was very jealous of the KTM :lol3,

    Harrah pass is one of my favorite overlooks. I remember the feeling of being awestruck the first time. Bryce Canyon is like that for me too, that first look :eek1:eek1
