In planning for an ATV ride next summer from Kanab to Bear Lake, we needed to plan an exact route. We have planned five days to do it and shooting from the hip would leave us somewhere between nowhere and where we want to be. Knowing the rest of the route from Bryce Canyon to Bear Lake, we n…

Last year I wrote an article about Rick and Debbie Worthen — neighbors I took for a ride on the Manti trails for their 30th anniversary. This year, the neighbors next door came to me and said, “Do you remember what you did with them last year? We want to do that with you this year.” Always l…
