We made it to the visitor center, got our stamp. We made acouple of stops & walked around but we could have spend a lot more time there. One of the things I wanted to do was hike the angels landing, Maybe another day. But I hoped to get us to bricknell for the night (didn't happen)

Back to carmel junction, past the buffalo heard. Yealp we stopped at the thunderbird for more pie. That's ho-made pie (yea i'm still 10)


Gassed up and one of the stores in town as a bus load of japenesse tourist unloaded. I was standing in one of the 2 stores in town listening to 4 or 5 different languages. I thought it was cool.

Down the road a dirt road detour to walk around & stretch.



Lots of deer sign.

Robins always thought this would be more fun in a rv. After I found her one in our price range, she decided to stick with the bike.






As cool as 89 was it was time to turn onto 12.

No but I thought I was gonna check with you about riding up to nottarally together, but looks like i'm working.

We do need to meet for a cold one and compare notes.


12 was bad to the bone






A while late we stopped off where Indians had made a food storage place up on the cliff. it's in that horse shoe looking spot. they had pipes welded to a stand where when you looked tru them you could see right where it was. Building it was one thing but getting up there to store food year after year. Pretty amazing.





While we were there, I walked down to the creek and was taking a leak on the way back. When a camero converable with 2 guys in cowboy hats pull in, smile & wave at robin. She smiles & waves back. One of em looks over at me, looks back at his buddy & says shes with someone. and away they go.

some where about here




Robins squirming and bucking like crazy back there. I got us pulled over & before i'd stopped she was off the back with her pants around her knees. I was thinking she was loving this more than me, turned out not to be the case.

She had red welp on her leg that was getting redder & bigger, it had been a long day. We were both tired, she looked at the spot on her leg as It continued to get more puffy, she looked up at me and said "I don't know what you've got on your mind but the next town we come to we're getting a room"


But don't worry I got the last word.

If I remember right I looked her right in the eye and said

"yes dear"

We got to boulder, I was planning on eating at the burr trail grill after we found a room. We stopped at the boulder lodge. They had a room left for 249$

Robin was shaking her head no.

The next place sorta looked cool.




This was the sign on the door.








we rode on up to the store
