Baker, Nevada Guzzi gathering

Bert put on his annual gathering in Baker, NV at the Silver Jack Inn ( http://www.silverjackinn.com/ ).

Two good nights of food, drink, and friends. There are not many distractions in Baker, so things are always relaxing. Great Basin National Park is just a few minutes away. A few of us took a tour of Lehman Caves. Still enough snow on Wheeler Peak and Jeff Davis Peak to make a few turns.

Some neighbors from home showed up in Baker late Saturday night as they rode the Trans-America Trail to the Pacific coast.

Capitol Reef

Driver and Greenpeace invited me to camp with them in the Capitol Reef National Park area for a couple of nights. They had a spectacular campsite and were kind enough to cook for me. Too many places to explore in this area with my limited time on this trip. Greenpeace had left home with a KLR, but arrived in Utah with a KTM990. Not a bad trade.

Made it home in time to catch Col. Bob's party that he throws every year at Fort Douglas in Salt Lake City. A European bike show (mostly BMW) and an abundance of brats for lunch, make for a nice fundraiser for the museum at the Fort.
