This trip is the result of a few guys with some vacation time to use and a desire to get out and play in the great outdoors. Our plan was to ride through the majority of the Utah and Colorado BDR(Back Country Discovery Routes) over a week or so at the end of September. As with all things the best laid plans never stay that way, and our plans were a bit more a of a loose idea of a trip. However with all the unplanned events and some flexibility we all had a great time, even if we missed out on some of the stuff we planned to see. The cast Orbel Dusty Roland Ken So we started off with 4, at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday September 27th. The changes start now, as the Starbucks we had intended to meet at was closed for remodeling resulting in horror, shock, and a lack of caffeine for this early on a Sunday. We overcame and made it to the Grand Canyon for lunch time. While the McDonalds left something to be desired in quality it did fill our bellies so we could bypass the actual park via Forest Service road 302. This dumped us out on Hwy 64 heading East from the park. By now the temperature is climbing and we make our way towards Monument Valley in the Navajo Nation. The campground in the Navajo Monument is where we setup camp, although a bit unusual for campground setups it worked out fine. As a plus the nice soft sand was great for sleeping, although it is a dry campground and restraint, so if you go ensure you plan accordingly!!
