Grand Canyon ….. Where?

Day 12 was to take the guys in the west entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park and out the south entrance as part of the day’s route.  As Steve put it, we spent $25 and saw nothing (even though we’ve been there a couple times).  He and the boys had been looking forward to  enjoying it on their bikes!  Instead, they rode through morning pouring rain, fog, mist, and wind finally ending up into a fogged in Grand Canyon National Park by lunch.  However, things didn’t get much better until late evening when the wet, wind-whipped crew made it into Willams, AZ

Slayer of Monsters and Born for Water

Justin and Jared went to a pizza parlor Wednesday night and met up with some Navaho Indians whom they ate with.  They were in awe of the boys being identical twins and the fact that they were riding Indian motorcycles.  In their culture it is extremely  rare for identical twins and they have a legend that a set of identical hero twins saved the world.  Their names were “Slayer of Monsters” and “Born for Water”.  Justin and Jared explained about their journey and the Motorcycle Cannonball and so they were given those Indian names.   They put their Indian names on Cali and Lexi Thursday morning.  

51 Degrees and Rain….Yuck

This morning’s ride from Durango, Colorado to Page, Arizona started out at a temperature of 51 degrees and RAIN.  YUCK!   They made a quick stop at Four Corners Monument (New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona).  All 4 made it in again today! Here’s a few shots that I’ve found from others of our crew.  Tomorrow they will travel 195 miles to Williams, Arizona making a stop at the Grand Canyon National Park.  GO INDIANS!
