    An Easy Ride Video With Fred

    On my way to Moab I detoured up the San Rafael Swell NorthWest of Green River to see the rock art within Buckhorn Wash. They must have heard I was coming 'cause the county road crews were busy working hard to finally give me a well groomed smooth "easy ride".
    Really nice scenery, petroglyphs, pictographs, car camping and of course this blank slate of a groomed road for TWing up to "The Wedge" , Utah's Little Grand Canyon. There I sw a mtn biking couple camping. Otherwise once the road crew went home I seemingly had the canyon below all to myself.

    I think that is the first "real" easy ride you've ever posted. Even I would go with you on that one!!

    You would have loved it Tommy. Just cruising while laying down tracks on the virginal plowed road was like riding on two inches of fresh snow, but a lot warmer. The mood was idyllic and unhurried, the views sublime. A little hiking and climbing was needed to get to some Fremont petroglyphs but otherwise it was a relaxing way to unwind after the previous day's journey from home. I would return there again as it had a pleasing tranquility that is often missing from Moab's energetic pace.

    Don't forget the water truck too!
    Utah is great to visit. Their secondary roads are usually well signed and maintained. The state motto of "the Beehive State" seems appropriate given the industrious activity seen there. Backcountry camping sites are usually clean, un-littered and not overly regulated.

    Forgot to mention, went there for the quality of the paleo rock art, so much better than what I find further west.

    The Fremont people left some good examples a thousand years later.
