OK made it out to the "world" today and found that the internet service in Hurricane Utah is wickedly FAST!!!! Got all the photos from the Grand Canyon Scenic ride uploaded in about 20 minutes, man that is cool, close to 1300 shots taken (not counting the one's I culled). This years ride was the best it has ever been weather wise. One rider who has a lot of miles on XP rides including doing this one every year since it has been put on said it was by far the best ride weather wise ever.
The canyon shots on day one and five turned out real nice, no smoke from fires this year so I could look south and see what I think was the south rim way out there. I tried to change shooting locations on day five as there were lots of "campers" camped on the trail. I had to set up at the vet check on North Timp point and the light got real bright as the morning wore on so with the large helmet brims worn today, many faces were lost in the shadows, none the less everyone looked great and very little in the way of pulls for the whole week and nothing serious.
