    INCREDIBLE! It seems the desert is a perfect place for bicycles after all.

    Awesome pics! Fall is very different there than in New England!

    I love the desert...whenever I'm out there I find it so peaceful, and love the wide openness.

    I really love the fall, but it's a love/hate relationship; the weather is finally more bike friendly, as far as lack of heat/humidity and bugs (and overgrown trails), but the days are just too short! I don't have enough daylight after work to get in a ride. Gotta invest in some lighting this year!

    I've never been farther west than Indiana and Chicago, someday I would like to visit the desert. As far as the northeast goes I gladly say goodbye to the sweltering humidity, the bugs, and the all too frequent 12+ hour workdays that bring my riding to a halt. I'm beginning to think summer may be becoming my least favorite season. With fall and winter comes the hunters, but with a good set of lights I wait til after dark so they won't mistake me for a turkey or venison sandwich

    It sure was a nice summer, after the insane amounts of rain early on.
    But you are covered: fat bike. I would be lucky to have one of those up here in the frozen north. But I cannot comprehend spending that much when I could buy a full suspension bike.

    Nice. Pigpen? Looks great I can't imagine many places nicer than the desert under a full moon. Beautiful lazy rivers, looks wonderful. My end of summer ride involved hours upon hours of fog/rain/snow, sheep and an encounter with a large carnivore. Fun, but yours looks like more fun.

    Had to deploy my Topographic Recreational Map of Utah on the living room floor to try and sort this out and I think I did. Awesome blitz/bliss weekend adventure, as ever.
