    I'm in Vernal!

    [X] Done with work by 5
    [X] Company provided hotel, car, gas, food
    [X] 61 degree temps
    [ ] Brought a bike with me



    WTF is wrong with me? Maybe it's because I was near by in Rock Springs all weekend for a hockey tournament and it was snowing off and on.... but I didn't even think about bringing my bike until I was about to Rangely this morning.

    Stopped by Altitude Cycles and bought a set of maps. Went out and checked out the McCoy Flats trailhead and chatted up a guy just getting done with his ride.

    Me: Hows the riding here?
    Him: (looks at my car) You from CO?
    Me: Yeah
    Him: Aweful

    May have to volunteer for any more trips up here! Reminded me of 18rd. Looked like some nice trials for the rigid. Anyone done much riding up here?

    Wifey and I vacationed there last spring then I found myself working nearby last August so I brought my tent/bike along for a revisit. I've ridden McCoy Flats, Red Fleet, and the Moo trails. I tried to ride something south of town but had too much trouble finding the trailhead - got discouraged and turned around.

    It's a blast.

    Vernal, half way between Steamboat and Alta. We used to call it Urinal.

    No, not in the energy biz. I used to live in Steamboat and chased the deep snow, whether it was the Boat or Alta.

    Where's Noah when you need him?

    That would be "noahcolorado", a frequent poster around here.

    Maybe send him a PM as he wrote an article for Bike magazine like a year ago on the trails around Vernal.

    The real question would be "Where is Craven Morehead?"
