I met these French bikers at an overlook on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park.





I explained to these French bikers who were touring the United States, that I took their picture earlier as they rode past.
"Please send them to us they asked."

He had just returned from Vietnam so his Army gear is strapped on his bike.  

He really traveled light by today's standards.


My Yamaha 305cc in 1968 where I worked as a Laborer in Sequoia National Park - loved that bike.



New friends, Doug and Sarah Greer, that I met in Lordsburg, New Mexico.  They rode some 6,200 miles from Glasgow, Kentucky out to California and back visiting National Parks along the way, including Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks where we met again in Three Rivers, California.  Doug rides a Honda CB500X and Sarah a Ducati Scrambler.
