I just got back from Utah, I'm still trying to process all of the amazing things Steve and I have seen and done over the last week. I will break it down as soon as I can into MTB and Fat-bike riding, canyoneering, and the Anasazi ruins we explored. I hope you like the pics, but what I really hope is you will get your butt out there and experience it for yourself. Just let me know when you are going so I can go back with you.
|We decided to make a short pit-stop at Loveland Pass, and justify bring fat-bikes along on the trip. The bikes proved to be a valuable asset as a shuttle (and fun) when the van could not handle the rough roads to the trail heads.|
|Riding the Slick Rock Trail in Moab is a must, Steve has not been there and I was more than happy to ride it with him|
|This is the drop into the Medieval Chamber, almost 100 feet. It was also one of the first ones we did and a good warm up for other, more isolated canyons later in the week|
|The first real desert ruin I have seen and been able to get close to.|
|This is my preferred sleeping arrangement, "under the stars".Waking up to a scene like this sets a great tone for the day|
|Cairn's like this were our best bet for route finding in many areas.|
