    That Bokeh effect image rocks!!!

    I hope to make it to Moab for a biking trip someday… but I still have these nightmares of being gangsaved by LDS missionaries on fixed gear bikes!
    goodbye cruel world. I am leaving you today.

    Nice work with both tires and shutter - it's hard to capture the scale, you did good.

    Yeah Ben's right - that's the money shot. That's the one to show the non MTB friends and say "This is what I do"

    Awesome shots though, looks like a great month.

    P.S. what breed of dog?

    Leaving tomorrow. It's really energized our hope to eventually own something down here. It's great to pedal out of the garage and reach such awesome trails in a few minutes.

    Thanks for all the compliments. Yeah, Chuky's shot of me above the canyon is pretty spectacular, a favorite for sure.

    I also love the colors!

    Did you post-process? Or is it a Olympus?

    I fell off my bike and into the wash during this attempt... I know, I know. But I liked the photo and I have made the move before. I have cleaned everything on UPS/LPS/Porcupine but I have never put it all together in one ride, so that's why I will always enjoy the challenge! And I better hurry up and get it all together because my wife is down to just one or two spots she hasn't ridden yet.

    One magic day I will flow through the whole ride like water, dab-free and triumphant. And then hopefully, beer in hand, I will get crushed in the parking lot by a massive boulder falling off the cliff, a life fulfilled.

    And that's why I've never made a serious attempt on that move. The penalty for falling off to the right just looks painful (and potentially damaging to bike and limb). Kudos. This move is much tougher than climbing the waterfall at Little Creek IMO.

    Thx for the info, chuky!

    I have to say, I am impressed.

    By the scenery, the riding, the composition and also the image quality of this little camera (although this parameter is shadowed by the first three!)

    Greetings,
    keep it up!

    Fantastic shots. I like the "miniature" effect on a couple of those shots. I don't know the name of it but I have seen it on Flickr before

    Same here. Have seen a few folks make some attempts, and come reeeeeeaaaaaally close, and have been tempted to try it myself, but always chickened out.

    I'll always remember that spot...The one time I was there, I was separated from the group, and I got there and thought the trail went down the wash, not up that wall. I got to the bottom and realized I wasnt in Kansas anymore...and had to hike-a-climb back out carrying the bike. That was harder than hell!!!

    Great photos JMH, I'm jealous. I was in Moab for the first time this time last year and looking at your photos made me realize (again) how much I miss the West. I'm going to have to move back out there this fall, I think

    By the way, I did a double take on the photo with the pup. It looked like he was whipping around a jackrabbit haha.

    The jackrabbits stay hidden, unlike the hapless Juniper scraps. She isn't much of a hunter but she's fast and enthusiastic.

    Thanks to everyone for the comments! I will be back down during the summer but I have no idea about exact dates EXCEPT for Outerbike. I will be working at the demo sending folks out on Orbeas, I think we should get an MTBR gang together for a Porc shuttle or 12. If you haven't been to Outerbike, you're missing out. Best demo event, food and general vibe I've seen in a very long time.

    It would be great to ride with a few of you again and to meet some others for the first time.

    It's a dried out hunk of Juniper. She whirled it around like a club until her neck got tired. Stupid dog.

    @JackFromNC - I am glad you like it, my wife saw the shot and asked me to ride down the hill for the pic. We were both really excited when we got home and uploaded all the photos. And I am glad I bought that blue helmet.

    Q: how is the XCX working out with the bash ring? Mod it at all, or just bolt it up and go?

    Gorgeous pics as usual, BTW.

    Bolt-N-Go. Not a single chain malfunction after probably a dozen bumpy test rides.

    Thanks for the props. Do you think you might be able to hit Outerbike? Always wanted to get together for a ride before you moved.

    Eyeballing a fall trip out there reeeeeaaaaally hard, but don't know exactly when, or if this year. Next spring more likely. If it happens, will for sure let you know.

    I was bummed to miss Outerbike (and Interbike) last year due to an unfortunate wing malfunction so it's definitely on my "to do" list for this year. From all accounts it sounds like it was a great event.

    G- The plan was born on a January Moab ride I posted here a while back. My wife and I wanted to do something really different to kick off our riding season a little bit early. We found a dog-friendly condo owner that was willing to bargain, we moved our computers and servers down and set them up in the dining area of a condo and there we were!

    Riding from town was standard, it added about 25 minutes to get up the hill to Sand Flats and Amasa was only 6 miles down an easy paved road. There were dirt jumps at the end of the street, so a few runs through the line became standard at the beginning of every Amasa ride.

    Preston loved the jumps too and her form was quite good. No rolling the lips or casing the landings, just smooth flow for miles.
