Flew in to Las Vegas Wednesday night, hopped in to my buddy's van and drove to St George, UT. We got up early the next day and drove to Moab - but it was a much longer drive than normal, LOTS of snow and sleet - slowed us down quite a bit.
Our warm up ride Thursday afternoon was Amasa Back to Jacksons - not bad for having no sleep and just gotten in to town.
We rode with Merrick from Moab Cyclery and a motley crue of former Escape Adventures guides.
The next day we did "green dot" and Portal trail. That's one helluva ride! Possibly my favorite Moab ride yet, and I've done almost all of them. The weather was cold and crisp - but all the climbing warmed us up and we had a great time.
The snow had melted a bit by Friday so we shuttled up and did Porcupine. I don't have all the pics downloaded yet and will post them later. Upper Porcupine was COVERED in snow and ice. The notch was icy and we all ended up sliding down the trail on our butts -flailing uncontrolably on the ice.
Once we got past the ice and snow, the trail was perfect and we ripped it!
That night was the Moab Halloween Party at the Elks lodge. It was a rough night.
We did a hang over burner yesterday up Amasa and down Jacksons. Boy was I shaky, with no sleep and too many beers the night before.
We drove back to Vegas last night and are hitting Cowboy Trails before I head home - haggard, bruised, sore and stoked!
Here's some pics - I will post the rest when I get home.
