    It snowed well below 4000 feet and where it did not snow it rained a pretty good amount. The ground was still saturated.

    Goose and Little Creek are blanketed in a good snowfall and will not be ready for this upcoming weekend

    Prospector/Church Rocks - Yes
    Upper Prospector (Harrisburg to Cottonwood) - NO
    Icehouse - NO......going to be a week or so.
    Goulds/JEM/Hurricane Rim - NO......going to be 7-10 days forJEM and Goulds...maybe longer. PLEASE STAY OFF THESE TRAILS
    Gooseberry - NO......a week at least... still covered in snow which will become mud when it melts
    Little Creek - NO.... takes longer than Gooseberry to dry.....

    Read what.....? Hey, at last they are asking right?

    Sooooo, Zen was awesome, right up until I took a low speed header over teh bars and my handlebar end stabbed me big time in the groin. Missed the junk but nailed my Lliacus muscle/tendon and femoral nerve big time. Hurt like a mo-fo and I couldn't move for a couple of minutes and little stars were buzzing around my head and swear words I didn't even realize I knew were spilling out of my mouth like crazy. Imagine that hitting your funny bone in your elbow thing but instead it's your whole leg going bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    So... looks like I'm going to be on IR for a couple of days beause I can barely lift my leg. Down force is no prob, but anything like a leg lft (like working the clutch in my truck, putting on a sock, pants..etc) hurts a lot! I can walk (like a gimp) so I'll go do recon on a few trails.

    Thanks for helping me out Tai

    Thanks for the input yesterday - rode prospector down to church rocks, grapevine etc... it was a beautiful day and the trails had a nice tack to them! Like most of the Utah riding - spectacular scenery and great riding!

    Thanks for the input - it was some nice riding!

    Ill be back once the Goose is open later this spring !

    Cheers

    I took my hardtail on Zen the other day and took a shot in crotch coming down the tech chunk into the ravine.....seat just wasn't low enough and I got a pair of matching bruises on each inner upper thigh as a reward. By the way, I was the guy who shouted to you while at the light, you were looking pretty done in
    I like bikes.

    That's funny.. I'm like "who is this guy?" and it hurt like hell to lean over to roll that window down! LOL!!! I was toast for sure.
