    DAY 2

    For the untrained eye, this is “Cowboy Mocha”….
    Thought for sure it would be something dark, bold, black with a hint of mocha. I got a very nice Hot Chocolate instead. The other guys were jealous. Clearly.

    Pretty tidy if I say so myself. Giant loop diablo tank bag. Mosko Reckless 40L with the smaller Stinger out back.

    For those curious, I think Mark’s Enduristan setup was the shiznit though. Compact. Easy shapes to work with. Lightweight. Still waterproof.

    Anybody see what I see?

    DAY 3

    I have 6 pics total from Day 3. Half of those are of the fuel pump so I could track my mileage. I’m actually sorry that I didn’t get pics of the “weather event”. Southern California native like me isn’t prepared for rain and sleet while motorcycling!!

    I did capture Mark’s light breakfast snack though! :)

    At the end of the day we made it back to Escalante to fully dry out.

    Taylor: “what weather?”

    I think he also said the double glasses helps with the street vision. Not sure how many goggles he wears.

    DAY 4

    I wish I had taken a 100 more photos on this trip. The hike up to Powell Point forced me to snap a lot more than I had the previous days. Love some of these shots.

    “go straight….you can’t miss the sign for Powell Point.”

    There were some mountain bikers up at the top. Got a good shot of one of them.

    This is a double exposure. Maybe.

    Weak sauce from me on the photo front. Must have been adventure fatigue. Here’s a couple shots.


    See Powell Point off in the distance?

    Just pointing out that Zion had some rain and mud slides BEFore we got there. Perhaps our weather bad luck is turning!

    Thanks TFC (Tardy For Class) for more great pictures. If this were the picture association thread, I would post this.
