"The Rematch"

[Las Vegas -> 3-Step Hideaway -> Las Vegas]

A 1900 mile counter-clockwise loop out of Las Vegas. Intended to be a kinder, gentler route, however due to torrential rains and flash flooding across the area in the 2 weeks prior to our arrival, well.... you know what they say about roads paved with good intentions.

Prelude & day 1 - Leaving Las Vegas
Double negative Day 2, Lime Kiln camp to Nutter twists thwarted from getting to Twin & Kelly points.
Camping at Oak Grove,
Day 3: Out to St. George for gas, and back in past Mt. Trumbull (school) to Toroweap.
Day 4, back out again to Kanab/Fredonia, then back in to Point Sublime, and camping at Fire Point.
Day 5, Hiking into Buckskin Gulch slot canyon at Wire Pass, and on to Page, AZ.
Day 6, Grand Staircase/Escalante bypass on pavement (flooding), a lap around the Valley of the Gods, up the
Moki Dugway, and hiking & camping with Scott & Julie at Natural Bridges.
Day 7, the back way over to 3-Step Hideaway.
Day 8, bike maintenance, and hanging out with Scott & Julie at the ranch.
Day 9, heading back west in rain and mud, forcing a paved go-around to camp at Hite Crossing.
Day 10, rerouting around a big washout, then to Capitol Reef, camping at Singletree in the Dixie NF.
Day 11, Hell's Backbone through Escalante to Skunk Creek cowboy camp.
Day 12, a nice connector and a windy ride over to another great cowboy camp.
Day 13, crossing back into NV and stopping to chat with a cowboy on a round-up. A nice night at Caliente.
Day 14, riding down Kane Springs Valley and back to Las Vegas.

"I came into this game for the action, the excitement; go anywhere, travel light... get in, get out... wherever there's trouble, a man alone... Now they got the whole country sectioned off; you can't make a move without a form." --Robert De Niro as Archibald 'Harry' Tuttle in Brazil, 1985.
