“Life is Good”…. It’s a fair statement

We had a nice surprise last week… I received a PM from a pair of travelers from the Netherlands who are traveling through and around the United States. They were going to be at the Grand Canyon for a few days and were looking for a place to pitch a tent.



Meredith and I met them at the South Rim on Saturday…. And we all rode back to Flagstaff together



Dann and Mirjam had shipped their two 750, Honda African Twin to Canada in March







Back to Flagstaff…. Get settled in…. dinner, then go downtown for the evening





Meredith and Mirjam hit it off from the get-go…..









Sunday… a day ride through Oak Creek Canyon, to Sedona, into Page Springs, Jerome and to the top of Mingus Mtn. ….Dann (pronounced Don) took their sidecases off for the day





Heavy-H met us at “where there’s coffee…. there’s hope” / Macy’s Coffee House

"Life is Good"... It's a fair statement

Daan was turning his video cam on for the switchbacks through the Oak Creek









We played tourist and stopped to walk around Sedona for a little while















Page Springs fish hatchery to walk around…. Then off to Jerome, AZ

“Life is Good”…. It’s a fair statement

Off to the top of Mingus Mtn. and back to Jerome before a late lunch











Mirjam and Daan carry a mascot with them when they ride…. “Faff” …. We introduced “Mr. Bill”







Time to ride back to Flagstaff…. Back through Sedona and Oak Creek and of course, in Jerome…. And a new month…. “Another Roadside Attraction”

















The sign says it all about our weekend!



…. It’s a fair statement

Nice Pics

Really like the pictures. Now I'm itching to get back to Arizona and retrace the route down Oak Creek Canyon to Sedona and on to Jerome. This is one beautiful part of the county, especially on a motorcycle.
