Default Zion, Escalante and Secret Elite Club Road

Here's some shots from our trip a couple weeks ago:

Zion Canyon-







Mile long tunnel near Zion



Here we are being environmental menaces near the town of Bedrock-



Here's a couple from the secret elite club road. It's near a regular scenic route but this is the nearby secret road for secret elite club members only-



Here's the huge lava flow along the secret elite club road-


Escalante view-





Here's the massive liquor store in Longview Junction-



This is the high point of the trip- 9600ft




And finally. Here's proof that it really exists. Unfortunately it was Saturday so there were no sportbikes there, naturally-



Adventure touring in 6 mile canyon

Lava flow? You mean the Earth used to be hot?

Any ancient SUVs trapped in that lava flow?

Wow, you Secret Elite Club guys have all the fun. You get canyons and curves and rocks and stuff. And a secret road, are you kidding me? All we get is dirt and sticks.

It's like those handicapped people, they get all the great parking spots. It's so ufair.

Nice photos...was it hot?

Temperatures were quite pleasant. The hottest it got was 93 while we were ATVing near St George. Had to wear some warm gear a couple of mornings. That was about as late in the year that you would want to tour Southern Utah. Usually it's getting into the 100s by now.

But it's dry heat. Like in your oven.
