    Gooseberry Mesa was terrible, couldn't ride 50 feet...

    without stopping to take pictures!!!!

    first sort of over 1600 pictures. This is what happens when you have 5 digital camera's clicking away in some absolutely awesome scenery.

    We had a nice trail system just behind our condo in St George that included Bear Claw Poppy trail and 3 fingers of death. fast--FAST--Fast. We visited them often.

    One day was JEM trail below Gooseberry and we went to Gooseberry twice. Also the Butch Cassidy trail up by Bryce Canyon (aka 7500' of gasping for breath!)

    Next time, I feel fairly confident that I could ride Gooseberry on the SS, but I was grateful for all the suspension this time. Gooseberry is kinda like a technical slickrock/Stella trail. Those who have ridden with me know what I mean.

    Yeah, Gooseberry sucks. It should be illegal to build trails in such beautiful places where you could get hurt trying to ride sweet singletrack and slickrock while gawking at the same time.

    Thank you for the great pictures.....

    In a year where health issues are getting in the way of riding, pictures like these ease the guilt and pain of not riding enough. Someday... when I get back into riding shape I would like to hit the Mesa.

    It is nice to live vicariously through the great pitures and reports that board members like you provide.

    Isn't it great we have a community like this?

    Thanks once again for your time and efforts to keep us in the loop.

    yeah, Joel had to go to a Trend West presentation...

    for about 45 minutes. It was one of those sales meetings to get him to buy into the condo. I don't know how easy it would be to do again. But there were bunches of condos on the west side of town (the whole area is exploding with new construction). We got a 5 nights of a 2 bedroom condo with full kitchen/pool/hottub/extra pulldown bed for about $600. Seemed like a pretty good deal.

    Is Cassiday Trail in ........

    Red Canyon? I did a week tour through Utah and we hit a trail near Bryce. I thought it was in Red Canyon and those pics look familiar. MKD
