    I found a little time the other day to go for a ride around my backyard. Since I truly enjoy the ride reports you all share, I thought I would try to pay you back by sharing my ride. I hope you enjoy it.



    Wells Fargo office in Silver Reef, the only place in North America where silver was found in sandstone. A little history here, if you're interested.







    More of Silver Reef







    On around the loop to Smith's Mesa.



    There are some petroglyphs under this big rock.











    Looking east from the edge of the mesa.







    More shots.











    This little river is responsible for the canyons of Zion National Park.







    Looks like I might get wet.







    Almost home.



    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    Nice photo's, you've got some great county to ride in. I hope you share more in the future. Thanks for sharing your afternoon ride.

    For a time we commuted to the Richfield area on a semi-monthly basis. On one of our last trips we did Silver Reef and some of its environs in a Vibe. It was intended to be a quick "offramp" trip just to see the town, but the further we went the cooler things looked. lol.



    Discretion being the better part of valor (and to save the poor car) after a couple of hours we gave it up, vowing to return with our TW's.



    It's on our "future honeymoon redux" list.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Thanks guys, and gal! If any of you come this way let me know and I'll be glad to share some suggestions for places to go and things to check out. Spring and Fall are the best times of year since it gets kind of warm during the summer. Well, actually there are enough mountains around here that you don't have to go far to get up out of the heat.
