4WD’ING AROUND OVERTON

Joe & Tara had not been to the Valley of Fire so they rode their bike there and around the area.  He offered to help me take my bike out but I declined as I had already ridden around there.

Bennie & Milo sure are best buds !!

01

But we did do some off roading.  Up trails and down trails – many very steep !  So STEEP that on occasion I held my breath and closed my eyes – and I was driving !!  LOL

02

We wanted to see if we could get to the road shown by the arrow.  Trying to find it, we headed down into an area where the trail was often no more than a cow path.

03

We ended up back at the boondocking area.  The picture below shows how many rigs hang out there but they are nowhere near as close together as it appears in the picture.

Back down the trail we go.

08

We would see a dot or two miles away where folks really wanted their solitude.  And off we would go to see if we could find the ‘road’ to there.  And we did !!

One particular trail took us down, down, down to where apparently a body of water had been just past this sign.  No water there now though.

04

The end of this trail gave us a very pleasant surprise though.

05

They stared at us so intently.  We were obviously on their turf and they were NOT happy about it.  So they slowly drifted off but never taking their eyes off of us.

06

Such gorgeous creatures huh.

07

I ended up spending a week in Overton but all good things come to an end.  Joe and Tara wanted to continue on and explore Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks.  I am not a ‘touristy’ person so those kind of places don’t interest me.

We parted ways with hugs and “See ya in Harrison.” ………….yes, AGAIN !!  lol

    1. Terry, I sure am enjoying having the option to do both riding and 4WD'ing.
