    ... and if we just ... I rode my bike to church....

    And it ROCKS!

    In our effort to beat the heat from hell we left our hotel in the early morning dusk. We got to our destination minutes before sunrise and it pays off as you can see.


    The weather at 7:00am was already in the low 70’s. A short pedal on the pavement to get to do good stuff provides a good warm up.


    Soon enough, we were greeted by the sweet goodness we call dirt. And the whole area was glowing in fiery orange and red, reminiscent of what I would imagine…..Hell would be.




    As we turn out from the canyon, it opens up to this view.


    And the Heavenly singletrack appears soon after.


    The surrounding section of this singletrack provides plenty of opportunities for some FR stuff. It has some drops, ledges and plenty of steep slickrock hillside rollers.




    This section was heavenly FUN!


    As we climb up and gets closer to heaven…

    God made a split second appearance from a far distance. Luckily I had my camera on me and took this shot.


    After that we rode along and continued on the fun stuff.




    Very much to my surprise, I heard a voice…Then there he was…the light…ZION!


    He said that he is the light at the end of the tunnel, so we went in to meet him…


    Before we left he shone his light on my rig and said….”You have sinned my son….but you will have commit a far greater sin, if you have bought an Ellsworth”

    We left shortly after that and felt terrible as a few of my friends owns one.
    Another crazy day at Church Rocks.

    Church rocks. Great photos. I love southern utah redrock in the low light angles like that.

    Better double check your biblical references.
    I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth...

    It's funny that you talk about the heat, that was one of the nicest (coolest) riding days I have had in a loooong time. It's all perspective.

    Good shots by the way.

    Shelbster,

    If ya ride with lights, post up next time you plan on riding out there. I've always wanted to see if I can spot folks riding up on the rock from across the highway. thanks!

    The weather was soooo perfect! it never got hotter than 76 degrees and it pretty much stayed like that all the way to Las Vegas.

    Church rock is a great trail a little short but can be rode twice or better yet combine it with dino cliffs trail. The best thing about church rocks, at least for us locals, is that it dries out really fast after a rain because it's almost all rock.
