There is some stuff in there that I might need to weave into my future Everett, WA to Lake Powell and back dream ride.

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, gentlemen. I haven't figured out the dirt/pavement percentages for this trip, but the ride back from Ogden, Utah, to Grace, Idaho, was mostly off road. In terms of time, rather than miles, I estimate the trip from Ogden to Grace was about 80 percent off road.

I was well familiar with most of this route. However, I did add some new areas where I had not ridden before. Therefore, I planned the new segments of my route using maps. When necessary, I confirmed I was on the correct route using my GPS receiver.

Here's a photograph I took during another ride on the Highline Trail with my 200cc trail bike.
