Central UT.
Fish Lake National forest.
My scheduled allowed for a quick 1 nite moto camping trip this week.
I jumped on the TW at the bottom of Koosharem canyon and planned to ride until the snow stopped me then backtrack and find a place to set up for the nite.





Due to all of the snow this season, the mountain was incredibly green and flowers were out in full force!



Snow started to show up at about 9400 feet.



Made it another couple of miles and came to the end of “my” road. Some big KTM enduros made it thru these two snow banks, but 100 yards up the road they said there was an eight footer and no way thru.

I set up camp over looking the “prescribed “ burn that was going on south of my location.



So far a great trip. I’ll finish it up with another 50 miles or so tomorrow and head back to the Salty City.

I did find a “fixer upper” cabin for cheap if anyone is interested!!

I love riding a ride like this finding old fixer upper cabins and what not. Not one time have I camped off the TW but I dream of it especially when you get up in the Quakies. Awesome ride!

Very nice. Your camp load out looks very efficient. Giant Loop bag on your CycleRack?

Yes GL Coyote....just a FYI I wish I’d bought the bigger bag from GL. Pretty tight with the smaller “coyote”.
Not a CycleRack, I actually can’t remember what it is.....I’ll get a pic later today of it.
My son had my backpacking tent on a trip up in Wyoming so had to haul the much larger Coleman on this trip.

Yes a GL. Just a FYI, I wish I’d bought the larger bag from GL, the Coyote is pretty small.
Not a CycleRack, I actually can’t remember which rack it is, I’ll grab a pic later today.

Hey Wing...great post!
Man, that looks like fun.

Serious question: Bears...I'm scared of 'em!

All of my "camping" has been in an RV, Army pup-tent or foxhole. No bears.

I'm not afraid of much, but that assumes I know what I'm doing and am prepared.

What do you do for bear avoidance or defense?

I’ve been camping on this mountain for 25 years and have never seen a bear nor any sign of them, so I generally don’t take any precautions.
When I’m in bear country, I hang my food, pack bear spray and always have a pistol as well.
I’ve seen bears in Wyo and MT, while camping and generally they just want to be left alone and won’t bother you.
Food and it’s smell is what will bring them around a camp, so keeping it hung and away from your sleeping area is important.
