Humboldt Redwoods to Coastal Hwy 1 – Day 3

Today was another long day. Going between hwy 101 to hwy 1, the coastal hwy, we traversed through some more twisty roads. And then once on hwy 1, it was slow, going through a lot of small coastal towns, construction zones and a not-so-straight road, following the contour of the coast.

We did see some beautiful vistas, and filled our lungs with good, clean ocean air.

Going through a giant redwood tree this morning, we met Matt, a young boy from England. He offered to take our picture.

He was very interested in our motorcycles, telling his Mom that when he grows up, he wants a motorcycle.

The giant redwoods were amazing, some trees are over 2,000 years old.

Since I was not able to load any pictures from last night, here are some pics of our camp in Humboldt Redwood Forest. We stayed at the Albee Creek Campground, and woke up this morning to a bear and her cubs.

Here are the pics from last night, as well as the pics from today.

Tomorrow we’ll head into San Francisco. I’m tired, so I will say good night.

Southwest Motorcycle Trip – Day 5

Bryce Canyon

The next morning we arose, climbed on our motorcycles to ride into¬† Bryce Canyon National Park. Again, beautiful vista’s and landscapes. Amazing how the rock formations were developed.

With our motorcycle trip coming to a close, we were reluctant to see it end. But, with obligations at home, and families we love, we were headed north.

So we were back our motorcycles riding down the road again, like horses headed for the barn, for home once again.

It seems like once a trip is over, I long for the next motorcycle ride.

…that is in the dream stages now.

Three biker dudes, not sure where Barry is?

On the road again!

Southwestern States Trip

After a long winter’s nap, I am taking off this Thursday on a trip down through the southwestern United States. I’ll be riding with three other riders, Braden Hirschi (New son-in-law), Barry Stone (Brother), and Mike Jarvis (My BFF).

We will head southwest our first day, toward Lake Powell, and spend the first night on a houseboat in Bullfrog, Lake Powell. Then the next day, we’ll take a ferry across the lake and head to the south rim of the Grand Canyon for the next night.

Our third day we will head through Laughlin, Nevada (Location of the Laughlin Bike Rally. But he rally ended a week ago) We’ll see if they have any cheat t-shirts. Then on towards Las Vegas. We’ll end up staying the night somewhere between Las Vegas and St. George, Utah.

We’ll then head on to Zion’s National Park and Bryce Canyon National Parks for our 4th day. The fifth day we’ll head back to Salt Lake City, taking the historical hwy 51.

Looking forward to a fun trip. I’ll keep you posted.
