Paiute Trail, Utah
We moved to Marysvale, Utah which is the center of the Paiute Trail in March to open a small business.
Working on our old building doesn't give us as much time to ride as we would like but we do get out a little
so here's a few pics from when we do get to ride.
We sold our home in Salt Lake and bought this 37' travel trailer to live in until we decide where we want to
purchase a home. It's just the wife and I so this works great.
This is just a few miles from home.
Looking back down about 1/2 way up.
The mountain is really red.
Right in the very center of the picture where the hillside gets a little lighter is where we live.

It was a nice short ride. I'll post pictures of other trails soon.

thanks for looking.

Wow, I don't like dry climates that much, but I'd sure like to live near those trails. Fantastic scenery. Great photos.

Love the pics, keep posting-em. The more pics that I can show the wife like that, the better the chance that we go out there next year for vacation. She thought those were pretty sweet...

Thanks you, I'll post more soon, maybe tonight.

MooseHenden, it's not all desert out here. We are fortunate to have both.

We took this ride last Monday the 4th.
Deer Creek Canyon
The beavers have been really busy here.
Looks like he got a new roof on this spring.
Perfecrtly dropped tree.
This dam was about 1/2 mile up the canyon from the first one.
And this one is right below the one above.
The upper dam from the trail.
Stuck again. LOL
There is still quite a bit of snow here in the upper elevations that reach 12,000 ft.

Marysvale is just out of sight to left of the picture.
The snow covered mountain range in the far background is the Tusher Mountains and Delano Peak is 12173 ft.

On of the biggest gold mines in Utah is in those mountains and was mined back in the early 1840's.
The mountains to the west of Marysvale produced gold and silver.
The mountains to the east are rich in uranium and the locals refer to the cemetery as "Cancer Hill".

When visiting Marysvale and the Paiute Trail this has always been our first choice of where we stay, Moore's Old Pine Inn. We'd leave the travel trailer home and stay here, this is without a doubt our favorite vacation location.

The hotel was built in 1882 and has had such famous guest as Butch Cassidy (who was born 25 miles south in Circleville, Utah). Zane Gray wrote Riders of the Purple Sage during one of his extended stays here.

We took this trip July 2008. We left our truck and trailer at the Inn and rode to Bryce Canyon and stayed at Ruby's Inn for one night and then headed back to Marysvale the next day.
We took this 2-day ride with our best friends before the other couples arrived in Marysvale a day later than we did.
Just some cactus where we took our first break.
This part of Utah is made up of volcanic rock that erupted a long time ago. Utah has 8 volcanoes.
This rock looked like a fish with it's mouth open.
Red, green, and white rock all in the same place.
This was the last pic of the first day. I took this one riding on the Paunsaugunt Trail approaching Bryce Canyon.

The first day we traveled 111 miles from Marysvale to Ruby's Inn, it's a spectacular ride. I'll post pics from the ride back including a ride down Casto Canyon hopefully tomorrow, it's getting late.

Thanks for taking time to check them out.
