Texas Bucket List.

So if one was to leave The Great State of Texas, what would you put on your bucket list to see? I think I have a great deal crossed off I am just looking for additional input.

Bucket list of what to ride before you leave or what to ride outside the state? You've gotten responses on both and was just wondering what you meant.

I was looking in state.

I have been here for about 30 and have a fair amount crossed off (not all moto). I have a bad habit of going into restaurants and asking for the waiters final meal, kind of odd I know, kind of intimate that this person shares what could be their last meal with you. So that has been part of my inspiration...

Meridian has posted a great list... I've made a good many of them.

I plan on touring Big Bend soon...

Glacier National Park's Going to the Sun (with no traffic) is at the top of my out-of-state list.

Returned from Big Bend yesterday... rode to Santa Elena Canyon then exited the park to the west and rode the River Road to Presidio.

A surprisingly beautiful ride was from Presidio north to Marfa on Hwy 67. With the winter sun setting behind me, the valleys were bathed in twilight on a cloudless evening.

was there in 1999 and the rangers told me the Yucca forest was in the best bloom in the last 50 years. Was beautiful. Bad pic to begin with, then scanned, so really does not do it justice.

Big Bend was on my 'Bucket List' until I visited there just before Thanksgiving. I spent 4 days there camping and soaking up the scenery. As I told those I met there, "rode 1200 miles to get here and found it to be worth every mile." It's not been removed it from my list but instead it's moved back to the top of my list for January and may be my jumping off point to ride as many national parks as I can in 2013.

Trying to wear out my old GS,
