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...
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 shake...my 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!
