    I know what you mean malazka. There is tension between taking pictures and riding. Sometimes we will ride the canyon twice, once for the ride and then take pictures, or vice versa. I usually try to take pictures when I pull off to turn around or scenic overlooks. This winter is the first one that we really haven't been able to do much riding. We trailered the bikes to Beatty, Nevada a few weeks ago, it was my husbands first time back on the bike.



    This one's from the truck as we arrived back in Salt Lake

    What would really cheer me up is hearing some "visuals" from your favorite rides. Like coming off Togwotee Pass and seeing the Tetons shimmering in the sun. Or that strange shoe tree outside of Mt. Vernon, OR or the road down into Flaming Gorge.

    Sigh! Summer is so far away.
    I hate those long winters with no chance to ride, so far our winter has been super mild. We are heading from Washington state to Daytona beach bike week in 2 weeks.

    Hell's Canyon Overlook:



    Washington Hwy 3:




    Top of the Rockies in 2006. I think this is Douglas Pass, but I'm not positive.
