Torrey and Capital Reef national park

So the pandemic showed the masses how great camping is. A lots of rented camper vans and RV’s navigated by idiots with no business driving a Prius let along a camper lol. Hit up a few places then decided to get away from the masses and found a gravel roads and a couple trails on the back side of the park. Ended up getting back in an area I passed thru in 18’ and was able to enjoy that area a little more, then ended the day in a place called sun set point

Torrey UT to Alstrom Point on Lake Powell NW of page Az. Took the hwy scenic byway which took my thru a lot of what I saw in 18’ but this time I went east to west. Passed thru the north end of Bryce Canyon national park and Dixie national forest. Then cut south east to lake Powell. I pulled into big water Ut which caters to tourism in lake Powell and was completely boarded up for the winter ended up having to pay 5.15/gal to top off before heading into the desert because the gas station only had premium left. I also was introduced to goat heads when I pulled over to piss cuz of course that was closed too. They were stuck in my shoes and tires?!?! Fuck those things! 
 

i headed into the desert and passed 3 passanger vans of people that really had no business being on the road. It was alot like getting to the Super Secret Shotting Spot in AZ but had many V shaped washes and you could see were 2wd vehicles had done burnouts trying to get thru them. Welp my bitching and thinking I was better bit me in the ass and the cosmos took me down a few notches and I cut a tire. FUCK! Ok settle down! You got all day suns not going down, you’re 3/4 the way there you can sleep here if you need to. 
 

slow is smooth, smooth is fast! 
 

gather up my tools (THANK GOD! I bought a rug for camping) put down my rug dropped the tire chalked my tires, truck comes pulling up. I shit you not it’s two Asian girls and a black cat in a Tacoma they ask me if I’m ok, the cat is looking at me like hey you’re my people! You good bro?!? I tell them I’m good I think. End up having to use both my new jack and the factory jack to get it high enough (after market was to tall with the flat). About this time a van full of guys speaking broken English flying the Arminian flag pull up. They too ask “you ok” I give them 👍🏼 they move on. I wonder about those guys I hope they didn’t get stuck cuz I have no freaking clue how they made it thru those washes. Get the tire changed and get out to Alstrom point and it’s worth every freaking bit of it. I watched one of the top three sunsets and sun rises ever. The stars were amazing, there was a meteor shower and I could see mars Jupiter and Uranus. It was so quiet up there

  I've yet to see my first road runner with any luck I'll see one at the fall shoot this year. If you're up this way BC has over 300k miles of forest service roads, some in use(logging,mining) but a lot of it decommisioned but avalible to 4x4s( they dig a ditch across the road, if vehicle clears you're good).

After seeing your photos and video, it's Time to put some offroad tires on the Ultra and go easy riding!!!!!!

On the trail to Alstrom there were a group of guys on adventure bikes. I heard them ripping up the mountain as I changed my tire, I was alittle jealous.

Until it started raining/snowing…then I felt pretty good in the cab of my truck with a place to sleep in the back. 

The ac was pretty nice too. But I still miss the days riding and every time I get out there on those curvy roads part of me wish’s I was on two wheels
