But I still need to tell you... This Zion, and a hell of a lot of Utah is sweet country to do some serious cruising.
|*Harleys below the Mt. Carmel tunnel into Zion*|
Utah is actually a pretty good place to make your fall cruises. Too dang hot in the middle summer... to cold maybe later in the winter when you want to be south! but it's the perfect place for that shoulder season... between the heat of summer and the bitter winds of winter.
If you like gettin' off the bike once in a while and doin' some hiking...there's plenty of trails around zion... like this lil' canyon... ;)
Over by Escalante, just below Hwy 12 a few miles, there are some awesome slot canyons (Check with the BLM office in Escalante)... though it might be lil' tough for a road bike to get to the trail head. :) Washboardy dirt most of the way... the last 1/2 mile or so will really test your skills. I suppose you could park there and walk in the rest of the way. LOL ... that's the place for the Dual Sport boys for sure!
... but what's life without some adventure and dirty scooters right? :)
I'm planning on makin' some progress in the battle of the leaks today and puttin' the scooter on the ground so I can get some Knees in the Wind of my own this week!
