The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

Heritagecon was last weekend and as has been the case with everything for me this year, I’m a bit behind posting stuff up. The model builders convention is held at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton and has grown significantly over the years. Enough to the point that people were commenting on it this …

The was a birds of prey display at the Brampton Fly In. It was nice to get close to these birds without a cage in the way. As far as I understand it, the majority of these birds have been injured and can no longer live in the wild. So they’re used to educate the …

I like the cars, well anything on wheels really but my heart is always going to be with the bikes. The bikes were practicing on the uppermost part of the course from Devil’s Playground to the Peak. Because of the shape of the mountain, there’s no way to get up to the peak area without …

Before I get into the article proper, a bit about my gear. Travelling by motorcycle limits how much stuff you can carry. For this trip I brought only three lenses. A Sigma 10-22mm f4.5, a Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.5 and a Canon 40mm f2.8 ASM (which I never used). Of course my Sigma 17-70mm was my …

I promised Kelly I wouldn’t post this up until he was home. The Schafer Trail. Every bit as freak out scary as it looks. Or maybe it doesn’t look so freaky from above, you have to get on it to appreciate how damn scary it really is. I could barely look left for the first …

How serious became really apparent once I walked out onto the Promontory and looked down.   But I’m getting ahead of myself. Before you do anything in this park, you have to pay your fee …

As we exited the cool temperate confines of rock that surround the Sandy Arch we were once again subjected to the harsh morning Sun. Temperatures were already in the mid nineties and we weren’t even at 10am yet. We decided to do the loop for Broken Arch. It should be noted that the distance on …

Our campsite. There’s only so much shade and as the sun sinks lower on the horizon, even that disappears. The Sun keeps up its intensity right up to the point where it slips below the horizon. You’ve got a brief window of pleasant temperature each morning before it begins its assault on you the second …

Leaving Torrey, Utah I climbed quickly into the mountains. You get used to always having to deal with changes in temperature. The bike for the most part doesn’t care. The loose nut behind the handlebars is another story. These days I pack for all kinds of weather. So while my jacket might be mesh, it has …

Seepapoo Bridge, the largest natural bridge in the world. Us491 Brought me to Montecillo and then I took US 191 down through Blanding to US 95. Needless to say I was riding through some pretty stunning scenery. This of course was going to be the mainstay of riding through Colorado and Utah. Everything is stark, …
