9th Annual ATV Club Fall Colors rides
October 3 to 8, 2022 Fall (Autumn) Colors rides.
Update on the 2022 Fall Colors Ride
As of September 21, 2022.
We will meet for departure Oct. 3, Monday Morning at Bryce Canyon Resort between 9:00 AM and the 10:00 AM departure time. Not sure where the Resort will suggest for our vehicle parking but will ask Monday morning.
I contacted the Antimony Merc reference our arrival to Antimony on October 3, Monday afternoon and dinner. The Merc diner closes at 5:00 PM, and I advised we would call them, (435 624-3253) as we begin our descent from Mt. Dutton Monday afternoon and giving our approximate arrival time. I am assuming g all of us will be dining there. We will also be gassing up at the Merc which has only one gas pump and 85 octane gas. I am bringing some octane boost as an additive for the gas. On Tuesday Morning the diner does not open for breakfast until 8:00 AM. Our planned departure time was 8:30 AM. So, if everyone is packed, gassed up and at the door of the diner at 8:00 AM sharp we should be able to eat breakfast and depart.
Tuesday on to Marysvale, the route depends on our time frame. I contacted Steve Hoagland who runs the Doghouse diner. He remembered our visit during our pre-ride in July. I said we have 19 people to feed, he said we’ll be okay to come in. I told him we’ll call (435 202-0578) and give an estimated ETA. I gave him the 19-person number, he said his hamburgers will be limited but they have plenty of hot dogs.
Wednesday morning, we meet at the Maryvale gas station and will be departing at 7:30 AM Sharp for our long trip back to Bryce. Ken Kunhi has got the gas station opening at 7:00 AM. So be there packed, gassed up and ready to go before you get your breakfast snack or hot drink. Dress warmly for we will be gaining altitude quickly as we head for Circleville. We can top off our tanks in Circleville, eat our snack lunch while others are filling up. We still have a long way to go on the Fremont trail, via Smith Canyon, Sanford Canyon, under the Casto Bluffs, Mud Springs to the flats crossing by the Bryce Airport to the Bryce Canyon Resort. Some folks are planning to have their gas there to fill up for the Thursday ride. There is a meeting scheduled for 7:00 PM at the Restaurant.
I’ll be notifying the Rockin R and Bryce Canyon Resort our numbers and confirmed list. The only one staying at the motel Wednesday will be Tony Wright. I’ve suggested that those staying at RV Parks consider storing their machines at the motel and drive their personal vehicles from the RV Park.
