We had a great time at the Second Annual Fall Colors Run. After meeting at the Iron Skillet near the Speedway,
I was volunteered to lead fourteen stunning Porsches. What a rush! We were headed to Cedar city via us 93 instead
of the usual boring I-15. You Know, I'm starting to like the roads off the beaten path instead of the truck laden
freeways thanks to Ed Pasini and the rest of the route searching Porschephiles in the club. There was a bit of a
dilema leading this bunch. Am I going too slow... or too fast... ??? We brought radios that didn't work well, and
Jackie was complaining that I was going too fast when there was a straightaway calling my name. Can you believe it?
Salomon driving fast? I am now a recovering Grandpa driver. We arrived in Cedar City without a hitch and no citations
around 1PM. Debra picked an excellent restaurant able to hold and feed all the hungry drivers. Utah is beautiful.
I had no idea. I had never been to these parts of the state. Cedar Breaks was magnificent! What a sight to behold.
The red landscape pressed against the clear blue skies was very picturesque. Sadly, only four couples were able to
contine on for the rest of what turned out to be quite a memorable experience. We drove through the 143 scenic byway
toward Pangwitch were the quaint, well kept Canyon Lodge Motel waited for the grand arrival of the self acclaimed
Vegas Celebs. We enjoyed an unforgettable sunset from one of the view points in Bryce Canyon. We later got together
at a cowboy BBQ restaurant that must have been the town's best for there was a line waiting for the mere mortals.
Porschephiles, however, were spared the agony and were treated like VIPs Food was Scrumptious!! We awakened the next morning
to an unfamiliar coolness that was welcomed. We were treated to a lively morning breakfast by one of the local jovial
waitresses at the town's best diner. Another trip to Bryce was in the plan this morning. Although we missed some
view points due to the torrential downpour, we got to enjoy most of the important sites. Heading down another one of
Utah's scenic byways, we were welcomed by the majestic canyons of Zion. The natural arches and manmade tunnels through
the red rock were a sight to see. What an enjoyable trip! I don't think we'll be waiting 'till next year to make another
run via a different byway. We hope more can join us. - Jackie and Salomon Braun
