Southern States Tour – Day 61

Day  61 Route
Day 61 Route

The weather today was partly cloudy to sunny for the most part of the day. One very minor shower (just nicked the edge of a rainy spell). Temperatures from the 50’s to the 70’s.

Day’s distance: 243 miles
Total trip distance: 11,344 miles

Readers who follow along may be surprised by my change in route today, back into the Northeast corner of Utah. In a conversation with my housemate Carson last night, I was reminded of how frustrated I was last year getting through the park with other traffic and the road work. To go through both parks from south to north is just too much, especially when starting from Rock Springs.

With Carson’s knowledge of alternatives, I planned a way to see some more beautiful country using a route that is not the full on Grand Tetons experience but allows me to impulsively skip it, too. That’s something I’ll decide tomorrow.

I settled in at 4pm tonight, so I put together a brief video of a few of my Flaming Gorge photos taken yesterday.

Today’s best hope for a beautiful motorcycle experience did not disappoint. Hwy 39 between Woodruff and Huntsville was beautiful.

There is a 180 degree curve about halfway between Woodruff and Huntsville that opens up to a beautiful gorge. Here’s a short video trying to capture that experience.

I’m staying in Logan overnight.

PS – sorry for the delay in publishing this post. I apparently previewed the post this morning but never published it 🙁
