Okay, you need to get out of Texas. This is a Utard intervention.

Been having a blast doing the snowmobile thing this winter
some highlights here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fz1GgQAe6Vg

But with the temps near 70, the snow melting fast, and family engagements keeping me from sledding htis weekend, thought I would take my son up Farmington Canyon to do a little pre-season Moto recon.

Davis County has had the mouth of the canyon closed, gated, and bouldered since the road was partially washed out in the flood of '11. This winter they moved the rocks aside so that snowmobiles, ATV's and Moto's can ride up to the top.

Figured we would hit snow up towards the top and that the road would be impassable. However, the snow is melting fast (about 2-3 weeks ahead of last year and maybe a month ahead of normal), so we were able to ride to the parking lot / turnoff to skyline drive. A small amount of thin mud is all we encountered on the road.

Here is a pick of my son with a nice snow covered north facing slope in the background (yes, he takes hydration seriously).


Not too much longer and we'll be hittin the mountains again boys.

Toroweap Ride Report

Southern based Utards with easy daytrip access to Toroweap. Ride report here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...725976&page=40

Sampler pics for those too lazy to click:

As always, the Schoolhouse is looking good.




Bikes and riders at Tuweep.




At the overlook.




All roads clear and no mud on Mount Trumbull. A few silt patches. No washboard from Toroweap to Colorado City. Similarly, road from St. George to Mt. Trumbull Schoolhouse very smooth. Almost no washboard.

Pluric - thanks for the link to your old Toroweap RR. Good stuff.

We (family trip) just spent five days down there. "All the sheep go to Toroweap", you guys need to expand your horizons! There's so much more to see than just Toroweap, and some killer riding below the rim if you spend some time checking out the maps. You can camp out there and not see anyone for several hundred miles...........
