Utah, Nevada & Oregon two-week ride (with a crash!)
In June, we took two weeks off to ride around Utah, Nevada & Oregon. 2989 miles / 4810.329 kilometres. The ride included:
Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry (about five miles of dirt and gravel to the quarry - great visitor's center!)
Arches National Park
Canyonlands National Park, including Potash Road
Capitol Reef National Park (the most under-rated national park)
Goblin Valley - Utah State Park
Anasazi State Park Museum
Bryce Canyon National Park
Great Basin National Park
camping on BLM land in Nevada
Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge (what a road!)
and... a crash! My first. I'm okay, and so is the bike, but Shafer Switchbacks - NEVER AGAIN.
Travelogue, with a few photos
. I try to write these not just as "Hey, look what we did!" but to help people that want to travel to these areas.
Just my photos
(I wrote very explicit descriptions for these photos - these are hard to find on Flickr, unfortunately).
