While we ride hard, we also stop at every interesting spot along the route. We also enjoy a campfire every night where we tell stories from other adventures around the planet.
On the road on a motorcycle lets you get in touch with your life, your choices and your perspective. You don't 'see' the sights, you're feeling, living and thriving within Nature herself. You get wet, you get cold, you get hot, you get 'alive'!

What is it about the Grand Canyon? Well, it's about 1.7 billion years in the making. I've backpacked into it on the Bright Angel Trail, the Havasupai and I've rafted down the Colorado through it for 17 days resulting in a book: Rafting the Rolling Thunder: Journey Through the Grand Canyon by Frosty Wooldridge available on Amazon.
(Stopping at Bryce National Park with its sandstone statues reaching into the sky. We hiked around, talked to people from all over the world.)
What do you do with so much beauty around you? You step into it with your hiking shoes and a pack.

When you set up camp at night, you always open the flaps toward the prettiest site in the area.

As a mountain climber, I can state that you might want to stop staring at yonder mountains. Instead, get out of your vehicle, tramp through the woods—and climb them. Or, raft the rivers. Or, canoe that mountain lake. Or, sling on that backpack for a walk into the wilderness. Or, pedal that mountain bike into a wild adventure. You'll be glad you did it for a lifetime. FHW
