    ... and if we just ... 116 miles in Canyonlands: The White Rim Trail

    I posted this over on the Fatbike forum, but figured the Utahn's would appreciate it as well

    D- I punched that ride out in one day this spring, truly an amazing place. I would have liked to take more time and did the hikes etc like you did. Maybe next time.

    Very nice report. My favorite trail. WR Day Lap is very doable for reasonable fit riders, and due to the permit issues it can be a much simpler and spontaneous option.

    Great trip report! I think that would be fun to do up here in northern Nevada! I have all of the nice and light backpacking stuff, i am sure i could adapt the Pugs to carry it nicely

    2 Day this weekend

    I am doing the white rim this weekend, self supported in two days if anyone wants to brush up on some touring skills you can join. I have the permit already, it's going to be freaking sweet.

    I think it's snowing in Moab/Dead Horse Point today. Hopefully it clears up for the weekend without too much snow/mud on the route.

    Sounds like fun. Wish I could join you.

    Sweet Pics - Supposed to ride the White Rim in early June. Will we have any problems with a Ford Escape as our SAG?

    I am not sure a Ford Escape is a good idea. Also, in June it will be extremely hot.

    A jeep might be better.

    Early June will only be in the 90's. Is that extremely hot where you live?? I wouldn't do a single day adventure at that temp but if your planning a multi day it would be doable.

    OP, The Escape will make it but you may have to begin referring to it as the " Escrape".
