Yep, ditto!

When l used to live in Vegas ,Utah was so close it was unbelievable that I could get from the ugly desert (& I mean UGLY!)
to the absolute awesome beauty of Utah in such a short space of time!

I enjoyed every moment of being in that State, & as an ex bro-in-Law of mine used to preach "It's God's Country!"


Maybe he is right............................................. ................

Utah

Utah----one of my favorite states.

It would be very hard to take me somewhere in Utah I haven't been.
When I was young I rode my dirt bike on all the nastiest trails they have.

Now--------- I tend to go the the more out of the way places---some I never, ever here anybody talk about.
Places where there may not be anybody---and is seldom visited.

Desolation Canyon is one of my favorites---a long beautiful ride down a dead end road.

N39 50.497'
W109 54.992'




On my way to the canyon I saw this as I traveled.
I was afraid to park my bike to close to this rock.






At Desolation Canyon I found these old dwellings.







Dragon, Utah---------------population -----"ME".






Used to be a railroad---and hotel.



And a store and gas station.



Here is downtown Rainbow---nothing at all left-------population-----"Me".



Watson, Utah------a sprawling metropolis Nothing left---population---"Me".




OH yes---I did find these 2 old buildings.



Fantasy Canyon is way on top of my favorite places in Utah-----I accidentally found this place while
wandering around some dirt roads. This place is way off the touristy routes.

N40 03.473'
W109 23.656'
















Never saw rocks looking like that before---it was down a dead end dirt road that may be
impassable if it was wet.

On the way out I saw this sign---I'll never forget this sign and just couldn't figure it out.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Paria Canyon---river bed

But----my absolutely favorite ride I did in Utah by far----was the ride me and my old
buddy Kenny Gibbons did many years ago------Kenny's gone now---man I miss that guy.
We started in Moab and rode to the Grand Canyon--and back.

We got permission from the BLM to ride right down the Paria river bed.
We were warned that if it came a hard rain while we were in there that we would
drown in there as there is no escape.
We rode for miles with a little fear in our gut.
I don't think it is legal to ride in here anymore.
Maybe that's what makes it so special.

We found the trail down into the canyon near Cannonville, Utah.
Sorry the pictures are so small---------this was back in dial-up internet days and it was
forbidden to post big pictures.




It was 32 and we were freezing.








The next day I was stuck in the snow.
