Can you haul a couple of those black lava boulders out for my yard? Thanks
Good stuff Kelly, thanks for sharing and keeping RRR's thread alive!!
My two son's & 6 of their buddies just spent 3 days in SG in perfect weather(wknd before Thanksgiving). This was my youngest son's bachelor party, that's what he wanted instead of the normal Vegas crap. One day was the hike to the top of Angels Landing, and one day renting UTV's out of Hurricane, blasting Sand Hallow area for the day. They said it was awesome! I know their third open day was not golfing as I suggested, possibly recovery mode.
Wonderful posts' Kelly!
Thanks Sam...if you get up this way, let us know....maybe we can get RRR to get out with us!
What's the weather like out there in April. Is it typically warm enough to ride most of the good stuff out there?
Looks good to me.
I looked up the average temps in St George but I think that maybe a lot of the riding is at higher elevations. I just don't know how high.
Been here 6 years. Weather is awesome. Still a little cold at altitude like Duck Creek but say it’s typically awesome.
Win as others have said, wx is fine, jump on in!
The wife & I used to rent a Harley every April in SG, never had an issue with wx. Although we did have a dusting of snow while overnighting it at Bryce one year.
I my gosh yes! You can ride all year round here and April is incredible
Wherever you may be on this planet, sending all the best to you and the family for a great Christmas & New Year.
See ya in Borrego!
Hard to believe it is mid January and I get this! I feel pretty lucky to be out of the snow but I pay for it in July and August!
Yep I camped near Duck Creek last July, got down to mid 40s! Quite the change from being in St. G day before at 104.
I bet you could go to the State Historic Preservation Office and find out what that building was... I am certainly curious and I often do the same here in Idaho when I find something that I am sure has been recorded in their records.
Got out on the KLX on Saturday. Beautiful Feb 8 with temps about 65 degrees and stunning vistas. Road about 45 miles of dirt roads and trail on the Beaver Dam mountain range here. I pinged RRR to have him join but he has been busy with house stuff so hope to get him back out starting next month! Sorry for the crappy resolution ...my Iphone camera must have been dirty
Question for you, a few of us are going to poke around the area on our 690s. We thought that the Temple Trail might be a nice loop. Any thoughts?
Temple Trail is fun, although there are some technical rocky areas to get down, but nothing the 690 shouldn't handle. There is also the Honeymoon Trail, which is quite different and may be a handful on the 690....about 4 miles , uphill (or downhill) of softball sized rocks...and not just a few, pretty much 1/4 of the 4 miles is covered with those things....
@ringokelly, thanks for the local advise! We are doing a little prescouting for our spring trip. Your area is like moto-heaven!
Great stuff as always rok!
Hope to be rolling through your area in April(Moab trip). Possibly by then we can drag @RedRockRider away from that new crib and get a few trails in.
You keeping the KLX? That Orange thing sure looks purdy!!
We are going to be doing the Navajo Trail from just south of CO City to about Hidden Valley on 690 class bikes in late April. It looks pretty benign on maps and Google Earth.
Can you tell me what the road is actually like?
We have done Toroweap a few times and were looking for something new this time.
Navajo trail is good for quick access to remoteness.
Some sand if you pick it up SW of Pipe springs.
