    Nice pics. I was down there last week. I didn't ride it as it was listed as expert / advanced. How does this compare to the Barrel roll, precipice, etc. I think I need to hit this next time I am down there.

    Ahh...that old man gets around, both on the trails and in the MTB press. I ran into him on Mary's Loop in Fruita about 8 weeks ago.
    Someone in the group I was with mentioned to him that we were on vacation and he said his 'vacation' was better than ours. The guy he said it too took a bit of offense to the comment until I explained who he was.

    Looks like you ran into JP Nuts. Sounds like the life to me. My wife even says it would be fun to get a small motorhome when we get closer to retirement and just travel around stopping at biking and/or hiking locations and see the country.

    Zen is seriously cool. One of my favorite SG rides.

    You guys are awsome I've made it down to that turn once and couldn't make the turn. It was hairy even getting to it. The pics don't do it justice! Deffinately think that Zen is the most technical trail in the immediate st george area.
