Yum!


A tough job but somebody has to do it. smile

Torrey has always been a special place for its tranquility and the abundance of great roads and world-class scenery. But mostly, for the friends, old and new, who travel to gather there. This one was no exception.


+1 What Fernando mentioned is so true.

A few photos from last weekend...

Went for a short hike Saturday morning with David, Hickman Bridge Trail. Only 2 plus miles up and down. Worth the views.













Whip mentioned the Gooseberry-Fremont Road was newly paved and opened from the Johnson Valley Reservoir to I-70.
On Saturday afternoon I rode over only to find out a low cloud cover and slush/ice on the road up near Mt. Terrill (11,547').
The cold o-meter went off on the bike and snow flake icon went on blinking. I turned around...





On Sunday morning rode over to Hanksville via. 24. through Capitol Reef National Park. Love that rode, despite the occasional RV.
Only stopped to take a photo of the Behunin Cabin, 13' x 16.5'. Hard to imagine 13 kids with 2 adults occupied it.




Later on in the afternoon I decided to try the Goosberry-Fremont again. It was warmer and the skies were clear.
The intention was to go over to I-70 then continue back on Sweeper Madness (hwy72) It worked out. 145 mile loop. Great loop!! Thanks Whip!

It was a great weekend!

Thanks Al, Pat and John. In hindsight, I think the photos weren't posted correctly. I just put them in the Check In post and not in a separate post.

Pat, next time you're out this way make sure you ride this road.
It makes a really good Torrey loop.
