Great Return Ride to the Southwest - May/June '15

Finished a great ride from central Florida to the southwest at the end of May into the beginning of June. The details might bore you guys, but I thought I'd share the story for anyone who might be interested.

I'm still working on filling in the details. I write some while we're riding - but I write less and less as the trip goes on. Out of town most of the summer, I'm just getting around to filling in the blanks. Links to the first several days are below.

I have a lot of video to come, but it will be a while before I have time to start editing. For now, here are some daily reports with pictures:

DAY 0

DAY 2

DAY 3

DAY 4

I'll post more as I finish the updates.

Already looking forward to next year's epic ride!

Got two more of the posts updated.

Day 5 is our visit to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park.

Days 6 and 7 are combined into one post and include our visit to Bryce Canyon, a great ride on Utah 12 through Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, and on to Moab.

Forgive the abundance of pictures. It's hard to narrow down hundreds of pics to just a few.
