Getting here was a bit on the rocky side, but super fun if you're up for a challenge.



Anyone been here?




...and that pdf map I linked to has a slight issue so it doesn't work with the gps, but i'll fix it and repost later.

Picky, picky. Murdock... Soapstone tomato, tomaato.

I was proud enough to narrow it down to somewhere in Utah.

"a bit on the rocky side"

Why does that make me think miles of baby head to melon sized rocks?

Pluric does know how to get there. He led me and my kids there 8 or 9 years ago. It is a very cool waterfall, and not normally very crowded.

Yep, sounds about the last time I went riding.

I'm afraid the birds would have eaten the bread crumbs by now. Probably couldn't find it again.

Father's Day was the first dirt ride since the crash. Recovery has been slow but I'm damn near there. The 800 GS is up for sale and I fly to St Louis Wed to pickup a new KTM 1190R. There is more dirt in my future.

Going to cruise through Kansas and Colorado on my way to UT this weekend. Can't wait to swing a leg over the 1190.

Sure I can. It was mashed and a pretty nurse spoon fed it to me.

Today a group of us are taking the shuttle bus to the park. Maybe that was yesterday.
Have to go now. The pretty lady is coming to empty the bag that fills with yellow stuff.
