    Yay for moab!

    Just got back from Moab...

    What a blast.

    And I think I got some awesome shots there too. I'll let you guys be the judge.

    They're not in any particular order...

    I nearly peed a little in my pants when I saw this one...

    Yeah I'm stoked to be in MOAB!!!

    Tyler dropping into town

    I'm riding back from the Abyss

    Now Tyler's riding down into the Abyss... well at least to the edge...

    Tyler striking a pose

    I love riding on 2000 foot cliffs

    Tyler riding on the Porcupine Rim singletrack. Half a mile later it damn near killed him (a tree stopped him from falling to the bottom 1000 feet below)

    Ooh, bicycles!

    Me riding the scary as hell line on the edge of town

    Same line

    Rolling in on the steeps

    It snowed!

    Tyler on the big cliffs

    Yeah it is a big cliff.

    Ok, actually it's humongous. 2000 feet to be exact.


    So you guys like?

    Later,
    Trevor

    Those pics are outstanding and thanks for posting those. The one you rolling in on the steeps - that looks EXTRA steep.
    Glad you had a good time.

    Believe it or not, it's just a $230 semi-compact camera. It takes some amazing photos if you know what you're doing...

    Great pix Tervor!!!

    I have yet to make it out to Moab....or pretty much anywhere outside of Idaho. One of these days.....

    ---------

    Those pix are great! I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Maybe I don't have an "eye" for taking pix. I have a lowly Kodak CX6330 and I realize alot of the "success" of a pic is in how the user sets up a shot. I need to take a class or sumpin'.

    Well A lot of it is taking pictures of everything you see. I took 2 gigs of total photo and videos yet I took about 20 or so frameable photos the whole trip.

    Secondly, It helps to shoot when the lighting is extreme. Count how many of my photos from moab have no clouds... NONE. It makes for a more dramatic shot. I mean look at that first one.

    Another thing I like to do is basically decide what I want the background to look like and figure out how to make a shot of it. For example, in the first picture, I sam the background and I basically said to myself that I needed to somehow get some action in the foreground.

    I dunno, it's hard to take bad pictures there with that amazing scenery.

    Snow!!!! We were down in Zion NP and on Gooseberry mesa and didn't have snow but our water bottles were frozen when we climbed out of the tent friday morning! It rained on and of Wed. and Thurs. and they were forcasting snow Thursday night. By Friday afternoon it was 75 and clear blue skies. I can't see your pictures here at work, but I am sure they are great. I will have to check them out later. Glad you had fun! Crazy riding down there huh?

    Real nice shots. Is that one "scary" trail on the edge of town the Chile? If so, how was it?

    Also, come get your shovel or I can bring it to you! The pump track is about to get leveled.....

    FYI- Chile moved uptown... They are now between the Brewery and the Village Market (South of town).

    New and Old simultaneously!

    Yeah I saw that too! http://moabworld.com/blog/2007/03/17...t-new-location . At the original site under and under new ownership.

    My favorite shop in Moab by far. Has anyone done the Chile Pepper trail that used to end right where the old shop was? That Moab World site has a killer "wheelcam" video of the Chile Pepper trail. Looks pretty fun with a bunch of squish.

    For a second there I thought you were talking about Hulls and Crestline on an early summer weekday after 6pm.

    5 miles of hell was awesome, but I was on a motorcycle... It was a bit tech in sections but to be perfectly honest I've ridden lots harder on the motorcycle. That said, there'd be no way in hell I would ride it on my bike. I mean I barely rode slickrock. 10 miles is a long ways to pedal

    Oh and that one picture of me on the super gnarly multihit line... I guess the locals call it the chili pepper trail. All I know was it was nuts coming off the drop and immediately turning and hucking again. You know that if it gave me pause it may well be a bit scary.

    Here's a sequence of another rider on said line:


    yeah it's nuts.

    I might just pull the plug man. Going to try to persuade my bro to consider something else in town... Let's get some riding in before I leave, I need to get some spinning in. No wonder woman costume needed either.
