With 45+ years of riding experience, the team has developed a library of our favorite rides in Texas and points beyond. We call them our Twisted Rides. We thought it might be a good idea to share that experience and encourage you to do the same!

We partnered with MyRoute-app, a leading provider of route planning tools, to create and share the routes. Using the map below, Users are able to view and download the routes without registering with MyRoute-app. If you would like the ability to open/edit/save the routes, the User will be prompted to register with MyRoute-app and offered two subscription levels - Basic (free) and Gold (fee dependent on subscription term and payment method). Being an avid ride planner, I prefer the Gold level for the additional features and I also believe in supporting independent software developers who invest their time and talents to create useful applications for the motorcycle industry. As a Twisted Rides referral, you receive an extended evaluation period and special pricing if you choose the Gold level - so give it a shot!

GST Day 10 - Page, AZ to Springdale, UT via Zion NP - 178 miles

DAYUM! As in the Glen Canyon Dam is huge!

Our first stop of the day was the engineering marvel that made Lake Powell possible. It is hard for me to fathom the amount of planning and building talent that went into constructing such an amazing structure. They truly are the Greatest Generation. The catchment area for the lake are mountains spread over four states upstream.

Yes, that is grass at the base of the dam!

We then went downstream to the Navajo Bridge Visitors Center to catch a few more pics of the river, including some of rafters headed towards the Cliff Dwellings. Beautiful sights.

Apparently, the foreign tourists have made a mess of things in the past.

Great little restaurant in the middle of nowhere.

With a view!

I had done a tremendous amount of research in planning the trip, but hadn’t shared many of the details of the specific sights to be seen with the other parties of the ride. I wanted to see and hear their expressions as the beauty that God (or Mother Nature, if you believe otherwise) made for them was unveiled.

As Karen (Scott’s wife) exclaimed, “Zion National Park ROCKS...literally.” I tend to agree...
