Cross-post from Passion... this is what a short 3.5 hr drive from crappy Front Range weather gets you.
My friend (Colo29er) and I had a "long" weekend in Fruita planned- Friday afternoon until Sunday morning- so we squeezed as much riding as we could into less than 48 hours. The weekend basically broke down like this:
Friday: 18 Road Trails followed by pizza and beers at Hot Tomato
Saturday: Rabbit Valley Trails (Kokopelli, Western Rim, East Rabbit Valley) followed by Mexican food and Margs
Sunday: Mary's Loop, Horsethief, Wrangler followed by getting in the car and driving home
Here are a handful of shots from the weekend... Fruita delivers once again!

The storm JUST missed us, but the views were inescapable:
Day Three, time for Mary's and Horsethief. This is the portage between the two:
Views here don't suck either. Oh yeah, the singletrack is fun too:

Believe it or not, there are a handful more pictures I didn't include in this TR. Use this link to see more:
