Video of the Week: Lea Rieck Rides Valley of the Gods, Moki Dugway

valley of the gods

Some of us are sitting here in the dark days of winter dreaming of sunnier riding climates. Arizona and Utah rarely see a day without sun, and this video shot at Valley of the Gods and Moki Dugway from Got2Go is just what I needed on this rainy Pacific Northwest afternoon. Not only does the clip contain plenty of sunshine, but the narrator is Germany’s Lea Rieck, journalist, author, and ADV traveler. Females being awesome always brightens my day!

I’m also reminded of when my dad and I rode the Moki a few years back. Great memories.

Have you ever ridden or driven the Moki Dugway or through Valley of the Gods?
