Thank you for your kind words, gentlemen. I looked through my files, and I found a few more photographs from the Highline Trail which I took on several other rides that month. I hope you enjoy viewing them.

Spud, those last photographs of Highline look so elk-ky! The high steppe of northern Utah and southern Idaho are a bit dry, but perfect for early autumn riding.

You inspire us all. Somebody said it earlier--keep photo-ing.

PD

Indeed, I basically took the trip down to Ogden so I could ride Highline Drive back to Idaho. Don't get me wrong; I enjoy riding around the Great Salt Lake, and riding along Skyline Drive at least once a year. However, I especially enjoy the trails, extended riding and scenery available along the Highline Trail.

Here are a few more photographs I found in my files from previous rides along Highline Trail.

Yes, I remember talking to you; you have a very nice XR650R. I enjoyed talking to you. I met your friend later, when I backtracked to Bountiful Peak. You can see your friend's bike parked next to mine in the photograph below.



If you examine the next photograph closely, you can also see your friend enjoying the view from the end of the trail just west of the parking area.

Nice ride!

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!

Spud,

Nice RR and pics as usual!! What do you think your pavement vs gravel/dirt percentages were for this trip? Also, did you use gps to guide you, old school paper maps or have you ridden this area enought times already that you knew your way around?

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.

The Highline trail from Logan Canyon to Soda Springs is some of the best.
I still love it although they continue to convert it to atv width.
Only one section of single track left from Egan Basin to Bloomington Lake.
