I made a loop from my home in Payson around West Mountain. If you remember the movie Footloose It has been a long time since they filmed that and the road is now paved. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087277/ (1984), about 100 yards from my home they filmed the scene where Kevin Bacon was pulled over by an officer on a motorcycle in his VW for having his music on. Recently this road has been in the news a lot because Actor Gary Coleman lives nearby and he tends to spend a lot of time in courthouse across the street from here.
About five miles later on the ride, I drove on the road, surrounded by miles of Cherry Trees. This was also part of Footloose--in the movie they had a game of chicken driving two tractors Kevin Bacon didn't know how to stop and his shoe lace was stuck so he couldn't jump off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQ2HNfLLRQ0 The other driver drove his tractor into a canal that is on the left side of the road. That canal is a natural spring and has water running all year long, hence the cherry orchards. I then rode through the city of Genola, which is full of miles of farm land and beautiful homes. I turned off Mainstreet to Lake Road took a few photos on Lake road (see below) then drove to Lincoln Beach.
On a few of the photos there is a cliff that is about 300 feet high. I was about 15-20 feet from the edge of the cliff when I took the photos. Below are fields right next to the lake shore where cattle are grazing.
I then headed back home. Short ride but fun.
This is on the South side of Utah Lake looking East at Elberta, thousands of people in Utah County live close to here but have never been here before. About mid way on the photo is the edge of a cliff.
Had to throw a shot of my GTS 250ie's Dash in there for fun. About 15 feet away from the front of my scooter is about a 275 foot drop where a field and Utah Lake is below. Not the best pictures but I am using my iPhone.
It snowed about four inches this morning. Most of it melted by about 9 a.m. though. Like an idiot, I left my scoot outside and it looked....er....."flocked up". I spent a bit taking large snowballs of snow off the seat, dash and foot rests.
This is about four miles North East of Lincoln Beach on the south side of Utah Lake. The dots are duck hunting type boats fishing. Good day for fishing, perhaps. Across the lake is where Brigham's Bee's took a nice ride yesterday, from Orem to Provo.
