    Holiday weekend photos... No food photos!

    Nope, no food photos, I was on vacation and didn't cook or make coffee... Frightening!

    The weekend before, Kevin's VW bus stranded him in Vegas. He made it back, but the bus did not. As willing and able friends, we decided to help him out on a recovery mission to retrieve said vehicle. Of course, that meant taking bicycles....

    We were delayed in getting to Vegas because there were some trails in the way:

    The trailhead:



    Bare legs and arms!



    Some Southwestern Utah slickrock (no, it's not in Moab):



    The scenery was atrocious!



    So we left and got back on track to get the VW:



    We ended up here:







    Tiggers can fly! Who knew?



    This was a scary move for me:



    Me (or at least my bike, anyway):



    The next day found is here:



    The cross country trails at Bootleg Canyon can offer up some fun and challenging stuff.





    And since we were so close, we visited this dam place:







    And saw a couple of these:



    And we ended our trip with this ride:







    In the end, she was happy to have her "doghouse" back (the VW):



    And work was calling us home:



    So here I am, back home, and there's snow on the deck (but it's melting fast).

    That's what I call a successful search and rescue mission. Kevin mentioned he was coming back to our fair state this weekend to recover his van. If I wasn't heading to Utah, I woulda come down and joined you. The trails (and weather) looked to be in perfect shape.

    Vegas has a lot to offer...... and none of it is on the Strip.

    BTW... is the first stop Church Rocks near St. George? Doesn't look quite right, but I can't think of any other slickrock in SW Utah you might've passed on the way.

    Yup! Church Rocks. We started in on Prospector Trail, which starts out of Leeds, it adds a few more miles.

    We rode a place called Tamarancho in Marin. It is where Charlie Kelly and Gary Fisher started riding on trails.

    Of course there's food!!!!

    Church Rocks is just North of I-70 as you come into St. George (from the North). It has a bit of slickrock and is the first trail in the area to dry out. They got a lot of moisture, lots of flooding!

    Are you riding with the OTE crew? Thought about heading down there, but not quite ready for that. Maybe in a month without the big crew.
