I'm tired of looking at all my old Torrey pictures.

Oops. Should have posted sooner. Left Torrey about 11AM, which is far later than my usual 8AM Sunday departure. Pulled into Mesquite, NV around 4PM after a cold but leisurely ride. Checked in, took a shower and went for the $6.95 Prime Rib at the casino. Looked fatty as it was being delivered to other tables, so I opted for the two-of-everything breakfast for $3. Couldn't finish it.

Went back to the room and watched a little TV, then called it done at 8PM.

Woke up at 2:30. The bike was loaded and I was on my way at 3AM. Nice cool nighttime ride. 53 degrees leaving Mesquite. Seriously, 53 degrees in September in a place that averages a daytime high of 118 in August. Actually turned the Gerbings on. Cruised thru Vegas before sunrise. Topped off at Stateline (Primm Valley) and then just rode on home, the sun rising on my back as I went thru Barstow (a blistering 57 degrees!!!). Pulled into my driveway at 8:15AM.

From this last spring--a couple of bikes near the end of the paved portion of the Burr Trail.

That looks like Cedar Breaks, Eddo.

Hi everyone! Sorry we are so late...we just got home late last night!(Thursday 9/28)

Judith and I left Torrey between 10 and 11AM Sunday headed for the Grand Canyon. Got there late afternoon but early enough to have sunlight in the canyon. Left there Monday morning and retraced our trek through Grand Canyon then headed to Colorado Springs to visit the Stovalls.

They are busy building a new home so we had dinner and a great time visiting. Everyone enjoyed meeting my new love, Judith. She liked meeting all of you, I'm happy and you all were great!

Looking forward to next year! We're getting married in Macon, GA and we'll post an invite to the board...please rsvp if you want to attend!

To me, it looks like the usual overlook next to Johnson Reservoir on the Fish Lake loop, but looking back at the mountainside instead of at the lake. Backside of this:



I expect Cedar Breaks looks like a post-fire apocalyptic nightmare.
