Photos From the First Five Days

We've reached the halfway point of our trip and are finally somewhere with internet access. Brayde and I rolled in to Moab, UT, the off-road Mecca of the world, late last night and decided to get a room so that we could do much needed laundry, take showers, and post photos.

Since Wednesday, we've ridden across Washington, Idaho, South through Wyoming, Utah and Colorado, and back into Utah to Moab. We've managed to do a good mix of backcountry byways, dirt roads, and highway.  We've ridden some awesome roads and seen some beautiful landscapes so far in the trip.  Rather than write pages and pages of text, we decided to make this a photo posting.  Enjoy!

Wild Horse Wind Farm Visitor Center.

Made our annual pilgrimage to White Bird Idaho to drink $1.25 ice cold beers at the Silver Dollar.

Airing down the tires at the start of an 80 mile stretch of dirt road out of Blackfoot, ID.

Breakfast, somewhere between Idaho and Wyoming.

Many people herding cattle that day.

Morning scene at campsite at Flaming Gorge NRA.  Laundry drying, breakfast, scenery.

The top of Douglas Pass in Colorado.  Reminiscent of roads in Switzerland.

We're looking forward to the next half of our journey . Today we'll ride through Arches, and then pick a few more destinations in Southern Utah before heading back North towards home.  Next time we get internet access, we'll be sure to post more pictures.
