Donna had a selfie stick that she was very attached to during our trip. I don't think she or Greg took a single photo with their iPhones unless it was on the selfie stick. Donna told me to be nice when I blogged about her selfie stick as it had delicate feelings and its button was ticklish. So with no other comments here are some photos of the selfie stick in action. I think I will rename this tri
We already had a "4 WD Service" warning message appear on the truck with some nasty noises. The noises mostly stopped so I ignored them. Then while driving to Ice Cave I got a "Service DEF System" message. I reset the code hoping the problem was transient and would go away. I was wrong. We soon got a message saying we had 125 miles to go then we would be limited to 5 MPH.
As I write this blog, I have been to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon four times. I never get tired of the drive. On this trip we visited the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on one day and the North Rim the next day. If you have never been to the Grand Canyon you should probably visit the South Rim. But we will never be there again unless it is during the off season. The South Rim is very crowded b
This place is truly an oasis in the desert. Pipe Springs is in the middle of nowhere. The Grand Canyon has isolated this area from the rest of Arizona and it has been that way for hundreds of years. The Mormons liked this area because it was hard for the federal government to interfere with their lives.
What comes to mind when I say "Nevada"? Probably Las Vegas, deserts, Cold War era nuclear tests and lots of nothing. You are correct but there is also lots of beautiful scenery in Nevada. There is actually a glacier in Nevada but that will be another post.
We left Baker Nevada headed for Moab Utah on US-50 and then I-70. There are long stretches of highway in Utah with few people and no services. One section of I-70 has no services for over 100 miles. Beautiful country, but what do the locals do on a Saturday night? Apparently tossing shoes into a tree.
Greg and Donna have heard me talk about Chicken Corners so I wanted to take them there and also show them Hurrah Pass. I rented a jeep and we spent a day riding the trail. The road was much rougher than I remember but I never get tired of this place. This is my 4th visit to Hurrah Pass.
After the morning ride and a quick trip to Gemini Bridges we still had a couple of hours left in our rental. In 2011 we really enjoyed a ride up Onion Creek. This trail crosses 22 shallow streams and can be ridden fast. We had just enough time.
Silverton, Colorado is one of the highest towns in the United States at 9,318 feet above sea level. One of the "must do" activities on this vacation was to ride our motorcycles from Durango to Silverton. We arrived at our Durango campground early in the afternoon and chilled until later as we wanted a late day ride.
