After the foreshortened spring trip to SLC,
was a bit disappointed to not get to Capital Reef/Bryce/Zion...
So... loaded the truck up (again) and headed south
for Round 2 - this time adding a 3-day Yamaha School
of Champions session (at Miller) into the mix !
Did 4 days of riding, prior to the 3-day school.
Day 1 - 475 Km Google Map
The ride over the pass(es) on Hwy 96, 264, and 31
was the same "outstanding" riding that Doser
and I had earlier in the year - simply spectacular !

Across the Sub-Alpine Passes on 96
I was thwarted somewhat, as I had originally planned
to go up Joe's Valley, and over to Ephriam, but the
road turned to gravel, just past Joe's Valley Reservoir...
The ride up to the reservoir and back was good, scenic,
though with a few too many tar snakes to up the pace...

Then a bit of flat-land, straight-line riding to I-70 and
onto Hwy 72, south to Capital Reef - which was outstanding !
