Here at Carson city nv and going into Yosemite to ride for Saturday. Which way would be the best route for a quick loop ? Any help would-be appreciated in seeing a few big trees.
Gas prices (06/28/2014):I forgot to ask an important question is there gas in Yosemite ?
umm, how do we know your not just sitting in your living room? need pics to prove itLeft reno nv. Sunday am and spent the night at rock springs wy. Then left there Monday am an ended up at des Moines Iowa . What a ride its been... Met a forum member and his wife from las Vegas when I stopped for gas in Nebraska , looks as though I will be catching up to the storm in Illinois.
Rich , nice to meet you , the miles just flew by I guess I was just homesick as I was given orders when I left home she only gave so much time . I hope I didn't spend too much of your money by talking about Yosemite and the armrests. Glad you got home safe. That was my first long distant trip on a bike. Again nice talking with you.Hey RedRider2,
It was nice meeting with you in Iowa. We just made it home last night. After we left you we pushed on to North Platte Nebraska. The next morning we visited Buffalo Bills ranch then drove through Denver and stopped at Buffalo Bills burial site atop Lookout Mountain. We didn't plan it that way but we couldn't pass up the opportunity after we saw the sign marking his grave. Got back on the road at 8pm as they closed the gates to the park behind us. By this time it was getting dark and at almost every turn there was a group of deer or elk. I called it a night in Vail as I didn't want an up close and personal with one of the areas wildlife.
Beautiful waking up in Vail! Riding through that part of Colorado should only be done during the day. If Vail wasn't enough Glenwood Springs was just around the corner to give us another scenic wonder.
I planned it so that we would be in Vegas after the sun was down. Even at that the temperature peaked at 106.
Glad to hear you made it home. You certainly can eat up the road much faster than I can. I'm surprised you had time to take any pictures.
