|EMPIRE CANYONS TOUR|
Empire Canyons Tour -
Northern Arizona &
Southern Utah Wilderness
These motorcycle roads start off from Las Vegas for three days and two nights across the Dixie National Forest of Southern Utah and Kaibab National Forest of Northern Arizona. Yes, the Grand Canyon North Rim AND Bryce Canyon extensively is in the area, so-to-speak.
The North Rim is about 1,000 ft higher in elevation and may not be accessible during winter months (Dec 1st - May 15th), AND early morning temperatures may be down in the 20's and 30's in November. We'll drive through areas of Utah that are meant for folks who like to tour on motorcycles. They have been known to lock their gates due to weather in October, so it's a good idea to check. Twice now they were locked on us.
Day 1 - 256 Miles - First day out visit Bryce Canyon, stay the first night here. Utah is just full of wonderful motorcycle roads with spectacular art work of pastures, mountains, streams, lakes and brooks.
Day 2 - 233 Miles - Day 2 will be a long sweep across breath taking scenery of butte's and vistas while we head from Bryce to the Grand Canyon. Most likely, this may just be one of the best days on the seat of a motorcycle you've come to experience cruising through long sweeping curvy roads of all kinds along mountains and hills of beautiful forested areas.
Day 3 - 194 Miles - Day 3 will no doubt bring visions of what some parts of Utah are famous like a visit through Zion National Park while heading across the high desert plains.
The Empire Canyons Tour
For the next few hundred miles edge your way to out of Nevada to Southern Utah just set back, relax and enjoy what you'll see from the seat of a bike.
After making our way through a few cities we'll climb the summit, the summit reaches 10,400ft and requires chains in the winter. During riding weather though, it's a favorite among our highways we love to travel on.
Just in case...
Back on the highway, it's a journey we've made many times and love the ride through Southern Utah.
Still working our way down into the Grand Canyon where we're confronted with miles of long sweeping enjoyable curves! In the fall as can be seen below, the Aspen's are beginning to change colors in the forest.
This open plateau around the outside of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is spectacular in the springtime. All these open fields flourish with small flowers.
For day 2 we've done a lot of traveling and starting to see the long shadows.
We were a mile or so down this dirt area in some scary woods at night, we still tell some stories of staying here. Headed to the North Rim.
Alas... Were Here!
As you can imagine, we were able to get some great photos in grrrrreat weather before we started home. Always another journey and road to explore for Vegas Valley Motorcycle Tours Just 4 the Ride!
