I just did an East coast ride with about the same miles down, but after seeing your pictures I think you just inspired me to head west it looks so beautiful.

That's a fact. This trip kind of ruined me with Texas once and for all. There really isn't too much to see here compared with other places.

So I realized that I'm not done with this thread. Didn't mean to stop with California and not show you the rest of the trip. I do wish I had the time to post all of the pics that I took, so the cream of the crop will have to do.


Lower Falls. Yosemite, California


Getting sandblasted from a dry lake bed to the right of me. This was only for a few miles luckily. Heading into Death Valley.




Badwater. Death Valley, California. It was 108 degrees when I went through there. It's also the lowest point in the U.S. at -282 feet.


The Badwater pool. It got it's name from some guy way back trying to get his mule to drink from it. The mule didn't drink it and he called it "Bad Water".

Sunset in Death Valley.


This was one of the best sunsets I've ever seen. I had to pull over to for a few minuets and enjoy it. It was a very spiritual like moment for me. One of those times that you wish you could enjoy forever even though it was still boiling hot. Death Valley, California.


Made it to Nevada. Viva Las Vegas!!!!


Vegas baby!!!


Fremont Street was pretty cool. Dropped $20 in a slot machine and lost. That was the end of my gambling for the trip. LOL.

Hello Arizona.


Getting my kicks on Route 66. Arizona.


Oak Creek Canyon. Sedona, Arizona


Standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona.


"The Corner". Winslow, Arizona. Notice the flat bed Ford?

Another cool shot of Vegas that I forgot to add.


The Snow Cap on Route 66. This place was established back in the 50's when the old Route 66 was the main route. The same family still owns it. If you ever do this route it's a must to stop here.


Red Rocks scenic drive. Sedona, Arizona


It would be a sin not to stop and have a Navajo Taco when crossing the reservation. Fry bread, beans, ground beef, lettuce, onions, diced tomatoes, cheese, some hot sauce and you have a meal. Yum yum!!!!!!!


The Blue Hole in Santa Rosa, New Mexico. 81 ft. to the bottom!!

Just shy of 300 miles per day. Some more some less. Trip was 24 days with 1 day off.

I'm at IAH base maintenance Hgr A, utility day shift.

Sorry it was so long for the reply.
