I was not going to bore anyone with our holiday pics but several people asked after seeing the bike getting ready on the newbie run pics. We road over 9000K in 14 days and had the trip of a lifetime. Heather (my wife ) took over 1500 pics so I pared this down by a lot. (Still a million)
We road through the interior of Washington, Idaho,Nevada and into Arizona.
Most of this time the temp was hovering at 110f. We only traveled back roads and tried to see as much as we could of the countryside. Our destination was the Grand Canyon but we had no idea as to the route we wanted to take. We traveled on route 66 and missed all of the tourist traps
We rode over 100k of gravel road in the Nevada desert,flash floods,washouts and dust devils. I even hit a great horned owl in the dark. It was huge. I punched it just as it hit me in the face, it cartwheeled over me and almost took out Heather on the way by!
After a few days exploring the grand canyon we headed to monument valley and in to Moab. (dam no jeep this trip) Played in the area for a day or two and then headed for Colorado and back into northern Utah. Yellow stone park was a blast with all the animals and geysers. Wyoming and Montana turned cold,very cold, but we had fun no matter.

All in all it was a great time!!!
Not a bad run for a couple of old farts.
