Just goes to show all your luck shouldn't be bad.

Snuck out yesterday, had a couple hours--cloudy, upper 40's
Antelope Island, sticking out in the Great Salt Lake:


North off the island


Took a couple gravel loops


Over the ridge- these big guys were grazing


Around the corner, these two were really close (but seemed disinterested with me)



...About 20 yards, self portrait


The most clear shot I got- still on the bike


To the southeast, headed home

Thumb Between Idaho and Utah?

I have been in Idaho now for about 22 years. Lived in Salt Lake for 2 1/2 years in 1980-1982. Rode my motorcycle with a friend one weekend to Bryce and fell in love with the place. I have been back to Utah many times since leaving in 1982 both on motorcycles and in cars.

For me it's a toss up between Idaho and Utah for scenery. However, I believe Utah is the state with the most varied scenery of any state I have been in. From the Flaming Gorge area to the mountains to the canyonlands to deserts to the High Uintas ! I could spend months exploring this one state if I had the time!

Great pics

Whew, no snow, no rain, no (paid) work today --

And for an added bonus, BOTH my boys were home. My 19 YO son just passed the MSF course in March, bought a Ninjet two-fiddy two weeks ago- so we were off......out to Golden Spike monument (no serious traffic, good saddle time for the boy, and me)

Forward:


To the side:



to the rear:


The boys at ATK-




At Golden Spike Monument:


If you've followed the thread, You've seen the backgrounds before- but the addition of the younger versions was great fun. THe boys did well.

A big hillbilly thanks


I snuck out here and there over the frozen months, but really just enough to heat up the oil/charge the battery.

I scrolled though your 300+ pic download of a couple days ago- How many memory cards do you take with you
Still jealous of the weather
