Re: Heading west this summer!!
Rode Montana Wyoming South Dakota three years ago June. Great ride lot's to see including bear tooth pass, Yellowstone park, Jackson hole and the Titon mountains, back across Wyoming through foothills, river canyons, badlands, and into the Black Hills as we entered South Dakota. Wyoming is a Greta state for riding so much variety of scenery and roads. In South Dakota we did crazy horse, Rushmore, needles highway, deadwood city, sturgis etc. before arse burning our way back to Ontario and home just north of Toronto. 5000 miles in 12 days. Great ride and lot's of memories.
Last year we went to colorado, Utah, Arizona and the Grand Canyon again in June. Spent a lot of time in colorado riding the mountain passes, saw Vail, aspen etc. on into south Utah to Bryce Canyon and the Zion canyon, hot 110 in the shade wow! On down to the north rim then the south rim of the Grand Canyon then into Sedona. On our way back we stopped in Santa Fe New Mexico, Greta town. Then the arse burn began, 6500 miles in 14 days.
It is hard to choose between the two rides. They are both worth doing but if had to choose I would go with the colorado trip. So much geography and geology I had not experienced before. Fascinating. Can't beat Wyoming Though one of my favorite states to ride. Mind you I haven't made it to the west coast yet and I hear that I spectacular also.
