Vancouver Island

Out of the city and back in the wilderness of Canada. Vancouver was good but now it’s off to the Island and see if all the people that told me good things about it were right. First thing, as I queue for the ferry, I meet this bunch of bikers that are going my same…

Vancouver

I spent three nights in Vancouver and reacquainted myself with the feel of a big city. Vancouver is however a bit different. It’s tidy and people seem just quite happy, it’s clean and it has a lovely sea front. The hostel was good and I have become quite accustomed to sharing room with people of…

Back to Canada

Nice evening at Camp Gonzo, spending the evening with the guys and a whole other set of people was fun but it’s time to get on the road again. Heading north towards Canada now and I’ve got a bit of a gamble ahead of me. It’s late in the summer and I hope not to…

It’s too late

Early morning in Three Forks, it’s bloody cold, 3ยบ C, and it’s seven o’clock in the morning. Eric said the sooner the better so I have to go. Eric is a guy I met at Burning Man that asked me if I wanted to to for a six day rafting trip with him and some…

Big parks

Leaving Las Vegas is not as stress free as expected, it’s truly like the movie. The bike shop is closed as it’s Labour’s Day, those A-holes told me to come and pick it up on Monday, also the rental place is closed so I just have to drop the car and come back the day…

Welcome home

So, the time has come, Isabella is here and performing her acrobatics in the pool, I collected the RV and we’re off. Once we pick up Cristiano from the airport it’ll be directly north to Black Rock City. It’s a long journey from Las Vega to Reno where we have to stop to pick up…

Around Vegas

Bye bye Zion, for sure it’s just farewell and not goodbye as I think this magic place will see more of me. Only a few hours move to the city where everything goes, Las Vegas. The road there is as desert as I’ve encountered so far, even the welcome to Nevada sign is in the…

Zion

Page was a success, I am now looking forward to get back in the mountains and for sure The Zion National Park will provide that. I have elected to go over the river and skip the Grand Canyon proper, I’m stopping in Flagstaff on the way back so I’ll see it then. the north rim…

Page

Arches was fun, the bonus was meeting Ken and I’m sure I’ll see him again when I double back past southern California. Amazing how many people one meets on the road. Recovering from the hell day of worrying I’m back on the road and, as Ceire (my magic Northern Ireland photographer friend) suggested, I’m off…

Arches

I’m heading west again, out of Colorado and into Utah to visit the Arches National Park. I was alerted to this beauty by an American hiker up in Iceland early in the year and as it is on the wrong side of Utah from Las Vegas I’m doing it on the approach rather than on…
