Awesome Couples Ride 2016 (pt 2)

part 2
Saturday morning we ride to Monticello, then take a cool backroad (fr101) to Newspaper Rock.

We enjoy the "cool backroad" so much that we take it again back to Monticello, and gas up there, we make a quick stop to see the new LDS Temple in Monticello, then ride to La Sal, Utah - Bedrock, Colorado - lunch in Naturita, Colorado - and back to the Stone Lizard for one more night. It was a rainy day so not many pictures were taken...

Sunday we'll ride to Green River to stay overnight.
We find some good roads to get there by.

Something in the distance....

We have to stop and gear up for rain. Next up is the La Sal loop road to SR 128.

 Over the top of the loop road into Castle Valley....even on a rainy day this ride is spectacular!

Now on SR 128

We stop n eat in Moab....

Leaving Moab we ride into Arches NP

Rooster, Wendy, Ken, Jan, Chris, Harry, Bev, Me.

Two Angels in the Devils Kitchen..

We stay at the River Terrace hotel, and have dinner at the Tamarisk

The next day we're heading for home, but still hit some nice roads and stop to have Elevensies at this place.

I can only speak for myself, but I had SO much fun on this ride! And...had SO much good food that when I got home and stepped on the scale it said, " at a time!" *sigh......*

Many thanks to everyone who came along and made this such a memorable ride!

1235 miles of smiles and super roads with Great Friends!

*ps - thanks to Bev for taking most of these pictures!*

Good food, great friends and superb food. Can't ask for more than that. Well, maybe a little less rain and wind.

Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous route and pics. Really making me miss Utah and Colorado, and wanting to plan a ride back west. Thanks for sharing.

Trobairitz - A LOT less rain and wind would be just fine with me! :) Thanks for dropping by.

BeemerGirl - There are SOOOOO many good roads and scenery in that part of Utah and Colorado! Thanks for reading!
