It's that time of year. The time of year when my feelings on Winter go from, "meh, could be worse..." To "Man, this really blows!". While, I'm a very much looking forward to warmer*temperatures*and the nice feeling of sun, shorts and T-shirts, January has really been pretty decent. December, for the most part, was a bit cooler and had a bit of weather as described in my "Winter Blues" post.
Since then, the weather has been stellar in the desert. It was Christmas day that really kicked off this amazing run we're still on.
Keels and Lina dog on Poison Spider Christmas day.
On the way home, we stopped to check out some of the more famous petroglyphs here in Moab.
Keels petting the buffalo, hippo or whatever it is...
"Wall Street" is a hot spot for Moab climbers and home to the petroglyphs posted above.
This time of year, the days are way to short, so after work type riding doesn't really happen, but the weekends and weekday sneaky rides have been awesome. I think I've strapped on tights three times all Winter. Some more from one of my*favorites, Amasa Back.
Can you see the climbers?
Always time to stop and pet a mesa.
We spent a somewhat cooler day on the North side of*Sovereign / Cedar Mountain. Wouldn't make this ride a priority, but there is some great slickrock slabs to play on out there and one hell of a climb up Cedar Mountain. If you can clean it, you drink less beer then me.
There is a few miles of some very nice tight and techy singletrack out there.
And never a shortage of unique rock formations.
Explored a few new lines on the Klondike Bluff.
I'll take Winter like this any year. Maybe the best part about this great stretch of weather is it couldn't have come at a better time. We're just mere days away from February which means the worst is over.
