Bev and I decide to take a week and go south. Bison Ranch, where we decide to go, is near Show Low, Arizona.
Bev is going to drive and I'll ride, because at the end of the week she will return home and I'll wander south and east to bag a few of the "15 Best roads in America" that SCMA puts on each year.
The bike is packed and I'm all set to go, aaaaaaaaaaand it is snowing! That's ok, I hit the road anyway and hope the Sun will soon show his face and warm up the roads..... I rode through a few squalls on the way to Moab.
The annual Easter 4 wheel drive gathering is taking place so Moab is even more crowded than usual, so I'm not able to find lodging, but I call Bev and she manages to find me a room at this B&B. Bill and Tammy run an awesome BnB!!
Beds and Bagels
The next day at the break of mid-morning I'm loading the bike and waiting for the Sun to warm things up when I pull a real bone-headed move; I lock the BnB key inside my room before I have all my gear out...Good Grief!!
Bill and Tammy don't normally hang out at the BnB so I was kinda stuck. I sent an email to their online site and luckily Tammy saw it and just a few minutes later all was right in the world.
Off I went to ride the cool La Sal loop, at least as far as the snow would let me.
This was where I turned around.
Next up was the Needles overlook south of Moab several miles. The turn off is about 33 miles out of Moab. The out-of-the-way round trip is about 40 miles, but it is well worth it!
