Notice the I [...], there was more to the story but my iPhone would not allow me to read it. I read the comment and thought, "geez, how am I going to find 'The Man' and 'The Dog'? His description is super hard to find." I cannot even see the rest of what he is trying to tell me. "What do I do?", I thought. Well, as usual, Missrider decides to hop on her motorcycle and ride. She always figures what to do while riding and asking the locals.
I was lost, thank goodness "The Man" figured out how to use Twitter Private Messaging and sent me his phone. I call, he says, "how fast can you ride, it is getting dark and you are around 90 miles away". Oh great, how comforting!!! I set out like a crazy woman, riding long stretches of highway on 249. I could smell and hear the caribou, saying to each other, "we better get out of the way, there is a crazy woman riding from Boston searching for a man and his dog, she will run over us" -- hahahaha!!!
Then suddenly, I see a little light in the distance, looked like a motorcycle. I must have been going 100mph or more, my speedometer was broken and I was going so fast, I could not read my GPS from the vibration of the bike at those speeds. I looked over and there is Ara and Spirit ---- hooorraayyy! My hero's, they came out to get me. It felt like slow motion, as if time stopped when Ara and I crossed paths. I wish I could describe the feeling when I saw them both. That vision of seeing them both on that bike will forever be in my mind. Sometimes during some of my adventures, I wish I could capture the essence via a photo, I can only save those moments in my own memories. My heart stopped beating so fast, I was at peace, I found them. My trip will not be a failure.....
Photos while riding through Caribou National Forest in Idaho, USA and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, USA. By far, one of my favorite areas to ride through, spectacular scenery and winding roads. Truly a motorcycle riders paradise. A must for me in the future...... when?
