    Virgin Rim Conditions?

    Both tread and leaf Thinking about making the drive from Flagstaff to do some sort of loop around Navajo Lake and then climb up and ride a portion of the Virgin Rim. I know the area got some snow last week and I was also wondering whether the aspens had peaked or not. With this warm spell I suspect conditions are getting close to perfect but wifey would be bummed to get skunked on fall colors.

    We'll probably follow that with a Blowhard shuttle and a serving of Guacamole with a Little Creek chaser. Any info appreciated

    I rode a Navajo loop on October 1st and the trail and the colors were spectacular.

    Brian Head got a foot of snow on the 5th of October. There was still a lot of snow everywhere last Sunday. The colors were gone, Aspens were all brown. I doubt that Navajo will be ridable and the VRRT above Navajo certainly won't.

    I am really bummed about the abrupt end to the high country season. However Highway 14 from Cedar City to Cedar Breaks is closed for many months due to a massive slide.

    Holy cow that is some timely but unfortunate beta I would have gone into that blind and had to detour big time.
