    No buyers on my Kawasaki yet so I talked Paula into a Zion on the bike trip. This is for sure the best way to see Zion & surrounding areas.

    Met these two up on 89 south of 40. They have been across the US & heading for CA. They took off work for a year & will fly to Asia before heading home I think New Zeland. I was envious for sure.

    We went up 89 out of Flag & stayed in Kanab. Went into Zion Sat. morning.

    Parked the bike & did a little single track walk down to the river.

    Met these two guys from Germany at Gray Mountain. Spoke very little English. They had rented these Harleys in Vegas & had been through Sedona & now GC & then to Page. Zion in the morning & back to Vegas. Adventurious those Europeans!

    I would recommend spending you 72nd BD or any BD doing this trip. By far the best way to see the country.
