you da man. any ideas yet on routes to the Redwoods? Last June we did 36 from Redding to Fortuna on the way out to Coos Bay and then 299 on the way back. It was spectacular.

If you find yourself in Willow Creek on 299, stay at the Bigfoot Inn. Guy is biker friendly and dried our clothes for us. Next morning we were eastbound along the Trinity River and it was cool, misty, green and no traffic (everything Tucson is not) on the way to Weaverville to eat breakfast. I thought to myself '...it can't get any better than this...' and then a bald eagle soared about 20' over our heads!!

Good luck and be careful.

besides the ones above S. Utah 163 through Monument Valley the 281 (Mokey Doke Highway) up to 276 and take the ferry across Lake Powell. Very cool.
