Just a couple teasers from the PCQ

Many more to follow...















Of course none of these are me. Jean-Luc has more pictures (including ones of me) which I'll get later.

Sweet pics. I can't wait to see the rest of them.

This one is my favorite thus far:



Arai XD's all over the place. Add your own XD and that's four for four. Nice.

Pictures never do the terrain justice. To give you an idea... Jean-Luc slid down this hill after falling over.

Berti after narrowly missing an 18 wheeler.


The view from Slate Peak... our final destination.

I have to disagree with your choice John...

That is by far my favorite pic of that bunch.

Epic ride, Aaron! I'm glad you guys made it back safely. I can't wait for more pics

EDIT: http://traveltoad.smugmug.com/photos/6383206-M.jpg This might be a candidate for best pic also... I didn't notice the dust from the bike the first go around!

Man, I can't wait to get the full trip report. Glad to hear all made it back in almost one piece!

Those "Wilderness" signs suck. We have only a couple in Utah and they seem to place them in very inconvenient areas

I'm not sure if those signs are anything else than a marker designating the Pacific Crest Trail...

Yes those are Pacific Crest Trail signs and the inspiration for the Pacific Crest Quest logo...



ps... the ride report is developing (slowly) on AdvRider.com

OK - my bad.

While Utah is considered a very conservative state regarding trail conservation, we still see signs that look very simular around areas like Moab's Behind the Rocks and San Rafael Swell that designate the area as "wilderness".

I guess the good side is that we see less of that crap here than you guys do out there

...and Aaron, I don't give a crap how ugly you are, those are some great shots!

Area 51 claims yet another victim. That trail has claimed many. Jean-Luc won't be the last I'm sure.

Sweet pics.
