More Moab

Here are some more pics from Moab.

This is when we went up high into the La Sal mountain area. Ran into snow which turned three of us around. Lappeman continued on to the summit.


We found this nice meadow to take a break and wait for Lappeman to return. The trees were huge.


Here's Rob returning from his summit run.


This is when Lappeman and I went to the Slick Rock area where the Baby Lions Back is. We walked up and then two girls came along in a side-by-side ATV and just crawled up like it was nothing. I thought they were going to flip over backwards and get crushed.


Here they are near the top. The driver was holding onto her dog in the back so it wouldn't fall out. Locals!


A favorite pics from the Thompson Canyon trail.


One of the views along the trail.


Stopped for a bite to eat.


A cowboy and his dog I met along the road.


This was a really high outlook just off of one road. Mark96 testing the strength of a small branch at the edge.


The view from up there.


BackRoader checking out another photo op.


2whlrider getting as close to the edge as he dares. Several hundred feet down.


Mark96 getting too close in my opinion. :


Lunch stop in Arches National Park. (Also trying to loose our tail....)

Nice bike. Good luck with the sale.

Thanks 2whlrider! Ya, like any Ktm, it's pretty tall. 37" to the seat I believe and with the beefed up suspension, it stays up there. Hope to sell it, so I can get some things for the 530 and get it ready for the spring...or sooner

Very quiet here! Yeah, wouldn't catch me too close to the edge either - Mark is putting a lot of faith in those little branches! I'd be wanting a rope tied on to a safety harness secured around a good tree... and even then I'd be wriggling out on my belly to peek over!

Little bit of a warming trend coming... tempted to throw the battery back in the KLR and go for another ride in the snow!

Hope the Piffle has good rain gear. Looks like it's going to be a little damp for the next few days. Rain, cold, wind, snow. Nothing stops the Piffle....kinda like the Terminator.
