    Boobytraps/ Moab

    Keep your eyes up and open. I rode several Horsethief area trails this morning and as I was getting ready to start a loop on Rodeo I kicked up my speed to roll over a “cattle guard “, through a fence opening, and just happened to see a metal fence pole wedged horizontally across the opening. Stopped in time, removed the post, which was wedged in good at chest height.
    No one around up there that I saw this morning, maybe happened over the weekend. No other “ obstacles” observed along that trail.
    This is a mixed use area with trail runners and oil workers so,lets remember to be respectful so that we aren’t targeted!

    I was kinda intent on riding. I just moved the hazard. There were footprints but there’s no way to prove who did it.

    I've seen broken glass on the trails at Lunch Loops / Grand Junction. My rear wheel lug nuts were loosened at Tahoe. We have to have situational awareness anywhere.

    Ranchers not a fan of mountain bikers, is my guess.
