Nice one, looks like a great trip.

Was a nice surprise running into some WD's at Klein Pella.
- you reckon that thing will pop a wheelie? We're about to find out, SLAP that pig!

Not the same place - no idea if they are the same owners - I looked on Google Earth, there is Canon Roadhouse, Canon/Canyon Village (2 spellings) and Canyon Lodge - 3 different venues......

Both Canyon Village and Canyon Lodge share the same driveway off the C37 before the 3 way stop where one goes left towards Hobas. We have stayed at both places and they are very different indeed but I recall somewhere both have the same owner. The Village is more rustic and the Lodge a little cheaper price wise but both are well worth staying at.
