Travel stories, photo's and maps

I love being back on the road, part one.

20180722_131216It has been a while since I have been on a good long road trip. Two weeks, 5376 miles, eight national parks, monuments, memorials, a set of tires, gallons and gallons of dead dinosaurs, and a lot of fun.20180721_105047

My friend Les and I made a plan to just go riding.  We sat one day with maps and planned a ride around the West. Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah and parts in between.CIMG8736

I left California for Arizona early on a Saturday morning, it was going to be a long ride but no big deal, it was only 650+/- miles.  The fun (??) part was going from 100 + degrees to rain to hail and then back into 100+degrees  all in 12 hours!!! Don’t you just love traveling on a motorcycle.

First stop was the Four Corners area. Too many tourists. Wait…we’re tourists too.  Next Canyon De Chelly a beautiful spot. So much history and so beautiful.

Overnight stop in Pagosa Springs. 20180722_110937

20180722_113051Overnight in Pagosa Springs Colorado.20180722_212654 20180722_200552Neat little motel and a great restaurant right next door. Got slammed with rain, good thing, it came 10 minutes after we stopped riding. This is going to be a theme throughout this trip. Pagosa Springs seems to me a mecca for riders with Wolf Creek Pass just right there. We had the pleasure of hanging out with some Old School Chopper guys.20180722_200151

Next stop Pikes Peak.
