    Landform tour of Utah.


    A little more than a year ago Jeny, Dan and I traced a historic route through central Utah.







    Our route wended through and over the major landforms of southern Utah, following an emigration route from 139 years ago.









    When you have a few minutes, please have a look here:

    Thanks for checkin' in.

    Awesome, my favorite parts of the state.

    Still haven't done all of the "hard" side of the Hole in The Rock trail, tried twice, and failed twice (4x4, not by bike).

    I don't agree with the doom and gloom about monument shrinkage however....I've been going to that area nearly my entire life.....and the Monument designation....even all the talk about it, has just brought more people there. People, in large groups, regardless of the protection status, make everything worse.

    Forgive my nitpicking....but I can't help but think that in your link when you refer to the "Hanks" that you mean the Henry mountains, which are near Hanksville?

    Yes, common to refer to them that way.

    Another awesome trip. I was hoping to eventually see this. I have visions of repeating the same route. Coincidentally, my wife and I visited MH ruins via bike several years ago also.

    A great tip on what to do with leftover cashew salt, nice idea to spice up those freeze dried meals!

    Glad y'all enjoyed it.

    Anyone know of any other places with this sort of trip reporting?

    MTBR effectively has zero of it anymore since they killed the passion forum, and it's really the only sort of MTB content I'm inspired by.

    I enjoy watching video trip reporting, like Forestyforest on Youtube.

    What happened to the Passion Forum? It still is there when I look.

    It still exists. It is a shadow of what it once was, both in attendance and participation.

    Yet again you knock it out of the park dude. As for the saddening bits, "and not everyone arrives with the same intent" -- yeah, that, and, harm outcome is not interested in intent.

    As always, thank you for sharing.

    (Also, must feel good to get the image bandwidth off your own domain? The big pretty serif font and grouped image layouts are a far better presentation than run of the mill forum software can achieve.)
