As already stated, had a most wonderful time at Cruiserfest this year. The Convoy to Cruisefest was a blast filled with great people. Cruiserfest itself was new and exciting, filled with a few unexpected awesomes. Cruisefest has lots of potential to grow, just hope the 50mph winds stay away next year.


Daniel and I got a late start leaving Denver, so it was the trusty Rabbit Valley for Camp Tuesday night. Wed we met Neil, Greg and the rest of the group in Green River.

After the fuel stop in Green River (sadly no Rays:( ), we headed towards our next destination: The San Rafael Swell:cool::bowdown:.
29381

A worth while stop, if your not entering the Swell via the Black Dragon Canyon, is the pull off from I-70 before entering the Reef. Some insightfull signs tell the travelers oof the building of I-70 through this section of desert.
