Day 5

We left out of Colorado a bit late...around noon time.

It is about 400 miles from Ouray to where we're staying in-between Bryce Canyon Nat. Park and Zion Nat. Park.

So we stopped a little over halfway there.

Just finished up supper and doing a bit of work on the computer...





...this is the sunset from the doorway where we are staying.








Got up this morning and made it to our next stop mid-afternoon.




Got some more work done, and excited about the ride to and thru Bryce Canyon tomorrow.




Starting out early, Mary In The Mirror...







It's about an hour ride from our base camp to Bryce. The road is fun and it it GOOD to be Back on the Bike!








Whoa! My mirrors are dirty!






Turning off 89 toward Bryce...








Not long before we're rolling thru Red Canyon in Dixie National Forest...








A look back at the tunnel we just rode thru.







At the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park...Free entrance for everyone today!




 

We're in the Park now. Mary In The Mirror-







It's about 20 miles from the entrance to the end of the park road...







...since 99% of the good views are on the return side of the road, we are just going to roll all the way to the end, enjoying the curvy road...









...then, on the way back we'll be stopping at all the scenic overlooks. A look back...







...and a look ahead. This is another FUN Road if you like the curves. 








Ok, the navigation shows we're almost at the end of the road...








...eek, look at all those people. Nope. Just gonna turn around, don't need to be near that many folks.








Headed back-Now for the sights!








First stop. Did not even have to get off the trike. Just pulled up to the edge of the road.







And still more, right from the edge of the road. Absolutely Stunning!





Got off the Trike for a bit more of a look around...








...View caught while riding to the next scenic overlook.








Black Birch Canyon...








...what a view!








Natural Bridge, maybe the most famous of the overlooks...







...no telling how many photos Mary has taken here over the years. She does not get tired of it. 








Riding between scenic overlooks. (btw, I am not showing all of the scenic overlooks. There are far better ones available on the interweb via google searches...just showing a few highlights of what we saw that day)






We stopped here along the side of the woods...making this our own private scenic overlook. (plus, we both had to pee. lol )








After taking care of business, we walked out to the edge...









...pic Mary took while I was taking a pic of her.




 Headed back to the trike from the cliffs edge...








...after 100 yards or so, we can barely see it.









At our next scenic outlook...








...Farview Point...









...there is a bit of smoke in the air...








...but still good visibility.









We stopped at this trailhead, with no bear spray. 








Discussed who could run faster...lol...









...looked around a bit more...









...then headed back to the bike for...

 
 
...the next scenic outlook. This is a fantastic National Park, both for riding and for the views!









View at 50 mph-








The sights are so amazing here. Mary took hundreds of photos. I'm just going to post a few more to give a feel. This is a place to visit if you can.








Another overlook...









This gives just a little feel of how vast it is!









Ok, we're gonna head back. 3 deer in this pic, 2 of them looking at us on the TG as we ride by.








Out of the park now, riding thru Red Canyon...








...and the tunnel again.









Galaxy Bike Motel. We've stayed here 3 times over the last 15 years. It is in Hatch, Utah, about 1/2 way between Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park.

Mike has it up for sale now. He has a Motorcycle shop, a Cafe and a Motel with each room having a different Harley Theme.

There are some more pictures of the place, including inside one of the Harley Rooms, from our 2016 Ride Report at this link- https://www.dkcustomproducts.com/acl...-continued.htm







Back at Camp!





Tomorrow we ride into Zion National Park!!!
