On a ride
:notw: Impressive! Might not have been pleasant at the time, but you have a memory and a tale to tell... "Remember when we froze our @ss off leaving Eureka..."
If you are going that far south into zion I would also recommend the loop around Jacobs Lake out of knabb around the north rim of the grand canyon and into marble canyon and cliff dwellers back into Page Az. I am going to do that ride memorial day weekend with about 5 of my friendsMike... I'm in rural Park County. The county seat is Fairplay if you can find that on a map. Yes, do know of Raebear wandering the border of Utah and Colorado.
Have intentions of riding west to Utah late summer if possible. Leaving for New Mexico and Arizona with five friends next weekend. Two have never seen stunning southern Utah. Saw a magazine article recently describing the two day ride from Moab to Zion and the challenge was thrown out by the author for anyone to come up with a finer two day ride. I did most of this two years ago and would have to concur with the author's p-o-v.
BTW, if any consolation, snow the last two days here, and more forecasted for tomorrow!?! But at least it is wet and will be gone by Monday.
Danii... During my ride to NM/AZ with some buds, was hit by rain on that Saturday. I've been able to ride everyday since and there was a streak where I was hit by rain 12 DAYS IN A ROW. So I can relate. Ahhh, but things are nice and green here now. Even had 3" of snow this morning but it has melted.Well, its rained every day for the past 5, 70% chance today. So much for the drought. I sat on the bike in the garage and made brrm brrm sounds. Does that count for anything?
Ahhhh... the LBB. Like it! As well as, "dynocologist""Large Blue Barge", aka the "Big Blue Bitch". Poor bike doesn't know where "home" is any more. On the plus side, she's getting ridden this year. Yeah, the mileage just plain sucks. I wonder if the 25 up front has anything to do with it... I think a visit to the dyno-cologist may be the next step... she was never quite 'sorted out' after she received her 'beauty treatments'.
Actually, it was 34, SW, which leaves 25 north of there. It goes to N of Laramie. I tend to stay on paved roads.Danii... During my ride to NM/AZ with some buds, was hit by rain on that Saturday.

BTW, remember your ride two summers ago trying to find a cutover to Steamboat Springs from eastern WY, and I think you took a road SW out of Chugwater, WY? Saw a report on this road yesterday and thought of you. If you didn't do this road, well, never mind.
