Torrey, Utah.

I have three free days so I ride south.
I end up in Torrey, Utah at the Wonderland RV park.
I can pitch my tent here.....
 or rent one of these cabins.....
 or stay in the sheep herder wagon.....
 But no, I choose this...the price is right and even though I feel guilty for not using the tent I brought......
 ............the guilt feeling goes away when this happens...  

 My 'backyard'.
 Later that night I go here for dinner.
 Excellent burger, and super service!
The next day (Saturday) I find a place to watch the Independence Day parade.
 The best part was the classic cars.

 Then I'm off for a ride on the Burr Trail.

 I stop and take a short hike into this slot canyon.

 On my way back out.

I continue on to Escalante and 'lunch' here;
Berries are good for you...right?
 The Three berry favorite kind of health food!
 Aaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnd it's raining again.
I somehow time my ride across the exposed Hogback for the worst part of the storm. I can almost say, "one thousan..." before the thunder sounds after the lighting hits....  My ears were tingling by the time I rode out of that storm.
It was a great ride despite the rain. 600 miles of southern Utah beauty!
