The people of Utah are among the friendliest people I've ever met. Kenny Lone, who met up with us and guided us on Tuesday and Wednesday is a prime example of the people of Utah. It was a blast, and downright fun to ride with him even though we had a breakdown each day he was with us. It didn't really slow us down much and, if anything, cemented a friendship started here on ATVConnection.com.
We were treated fairly in all our transactions and always welcomed wherever we went. From trailside restaurants, and gas stations, to ATV rental shops that treated me fairly, to accommodations to suit everyone's style; we never felt unwanted. The area has seen a decline in the mining industry in the last few decades and the Paiute Trail is a big part of the solution. It is one of those places where there is a new breathtaking view around every corner.
We never felt crowded on the trails except for a tight series of switchbacks above Circleville where we met a group coming up while we were coming down. That took an hour where we had our rigs balanced on the edge of the trail so they could just make it by. Even then we had to push on the roll bars of their RZRs to keep them from bumping our machines off the edge of the cliff. Still, all in all, a great, epic adventure.

His pictures and narration are the spark to our going out there.
