 Folsom HOGsters,

It is time to add a new ride to our repertoire. Here’s the plan for this spring’s Journey to Zion/Arches National Parks:

 

Let’s hook up for breakfast at Mel's Diner near the Folsom HD shop at 8:30 on 5/20 for breakfast, leaving around 9-9:30. There will be a short stop at Fresh Pond around 10:00-10:15 to top off tanks and pick up any Hill Folk who would rather not trek down the hill.


First night lodging 5/20 will be at the:

Portal Motel

425 S Main St, Lone Pine, CA 93545

(760) 876-5930.

The next morning after breakfast in Mesquite we will hook up with former members and all around good people Rick and Jon Southern for the ride through Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park and Capitol Reef National Park. We will also be riding on Utah’s Highway 12 which is portrayed as one of the country’s top 5 motorcycle rides. This day will be a slow ride through the parks (278 miles).

Noor Hotel

The following morning, after another good night’s sleep and hearty breakfast, we will head into Arches National Park where we will explore the park and all that Mother Nature has to offer. This day will be shorter distance (201) allowing us to spend some time in the park before heading to the motel.

Following breakfast in Green River we will begin our journey home riding Highway 50 “The Loneliest Highway In America” on our way we will take some time to explore the World War II Japanese internment camp Topaz before checking into the motel for the night. This will be a short riding day (only 190 miles).
