    I've done 8 US road trips so far, with my wife, with my son and on my own, in cars, an RV and on bikes. Best holidays we've ever had. I recommend going to Bonneville Salt Flats for Speed Week if you can fit that in.

    The whole area is stunning and well worth a diversion from the usual touristy places.
    I agree Chris- Kings Canyon is in the top 3 riding days of my life

    2018 Roadtrip

    The road out of Zion was also stunning as we headed towards Bryce Canyon







    Bryce, as always, was simply breathtaking







    Than it was time for a nice thrash down UT12 to Torrey for the night

    Your Mrs always looks so happy. Can we have some pictures of her shouting at you, or being miserable, just for balance?

    Best I can do - not sure what I’d said

    From Torrey we headed down to Chinle via the John Hall ferry/UT276 (great road), Moki Dugway and Monument Valley









    Chinle is a dump, but thankfully Denny’s was (rather surprisingly) clean and pretty good for dinner as there wasn’t much choice

    The reason for going to Chinle was to see the Canyon du Chelley. It’s not as spectacular as the Grand Canyon, but was very pretty nonetheless





    The following morning we had a Jeep tour inside the canyon with a geriatric Navajo guide

    2018 Roadtrip

    After the Jeep tour we headed down the scenic and twisty AZ77 to Globe, before a tedious trek across the desert to Tombstone





    The Main Street is still pretty original and very interesting, although we arrived too late to see the “Gunfight at the OK Corral” re-enactment







    After a few beers and a steak for tea, we made the mistake of drinking with the locals in Doc Holidays favourite bar. The barmaid didn’t know how to make a G&T, so after several quadruple gins, Trudi lost her ability to walk and then threw up when we got back to the room

    Why is this in Ride Reports? Surely it should be in 4 Wheelers?

    It's a kind of ride report

    Chinle is a dump but teh Canyon de Chelley is stunning and a real treasure in my opinion. We normally walk into the canyon at about 6.00am before the heat and it's truly beautiful in there.
