Kawasaki ZX6R Triumph Speed Triple Chief Joseph Highway Wyoming

May 2005

Hi Everyone-

We spent the night at the Cody Motor Lodge in Cody, Wyoming where we saw on the news that the Beartooth Pass from Red Lodge, Montana had been closed because of mudslides. Unfortunately that was the way we were going to head in to Yellowstone. We took an alternate route going up and over the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. That’s where we snapped this picture.

While we were stopped, a lady pulled over and told us that the road ahead was covered in snow and ice. We decided that we could turn around if we needed to and kept going forward. I’m glad we did. It was only a snowy winter wonderland for a few miles. We emerged on the back side of the pass unscathed and pretty excited about what we’d just seen.

This was a day I’ll never forget.

This photo was taken in May of 2005 when Kenny and I rode from Long Island to Yellowstone National Park. It still stands as one of the most memorable trips of my life.

Sunset near Rutland

Kenny and I crossed over from New York into Vermont on Route 2 at Rouses Point. It’s funny, but as soon as we rode across Lake Champlain and down Grand Isle, everything seemed so much… nicer? I can’t tell if it is just mental, like the feeling of being away from home or what. It was just greener ad cooler and just Vermont-y-er. We holed up near Burlington for the night and just rode around in circles all day on Saturday, staying near Rutland.
