Title says "Hot Chicks" yet all I see are a dozen pictures of sheep. Lonely trip I reckon?

More pics (less sheep)!

It was late and the run across 14n was done without many pics, at least by me. It's a very curvy, up and down road with drop offs and you had to be on your toes. We wanted to get to Echo Park before dark and kept the pace pretty steady for the last fifteen or so miles. The big pig fully loaded KLR wore me out. I got more used to it as the trip went on.

We picked out a site that would accommodate five of us and got started setting up




Soon were ready for supper.


Then for entertainment we got to watch Rick try to put his new JetBoil back together :)


We had some visitors in camp and I hoped that the bears and cougars preferred them to smelly bikers


Sunset and the end of our first day.


Next up the rocky downhill and Flaming Gorge.

John

Kevin's Tank

Man Kevin, that's a massive tank you've installed on your DR...probably only filled it up a couple of times on the trip. You must be jealous of KLR's...
Very cool pics! Living vicariously via your ride reports!

Awesome! Good bike for a woman. If I had one I'd get it for her!

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
