Amazing pictures! The ride report you did on advrider is awesome. I wish I had the time/ money/ job/ wife that would allow me to do such a thing. Someday, someday...

nice pics. where is that slot canyon hiking trail, 4th from the top?

In a world full of people, only some want to ride. Isn't that crazy?

Zion NP. It was part of an 8 mile 2148ft elevation change hike. Zion was Spectacular.

The view on this hike:



And the road through Zion:

Nice pics. I was just in Ouray last week. You had much better weather for the Million Dollar Hwy than I did!

Always trust your cape.

Nice! My 2012 ride through that region is becoming a distant memory.

I spent a couple of nights in Ouray last week. It's a really cool place.



There were a lot of bikes there. This was the parking lot at my motel:

That slot canyon is on the hike to Observation Point. I wanted do to the Angels landing hike but it was closed that morning I was really bummed because I had been looking forward to hiking Angels Landing foe about 2 years. However, the hike to observation point was awesome. I will go back and hike Angels landing sometime.
