Likely Kokopelli to Grand Junction, Grand Junction to Vernal, and then Vernal back to SLC. Pretty ambitious of course, but all doable...
screen shot of planned original route:
Lolly Pop Route:
0362 to 0012, then 1 to end, and back 0012 to 0362
And what we actually did (tamed down slightly in distance, not in technical riding) through the mountains to the north, and through and the heart of central and central-southern Utah, the San Rafael Swell (the whitish area you see below, north west of Moab) . Still just under 800 miles total...
lolly pop route:
down and back between "Active Log" and "Active Log 002"
then counter clockwise on the route.
