    Just back from Utah...

    Saw some beautiful country. Took a ton of pictures. Without going into a lot of details, if you get a chance to ride the White Rim road in Canyonlands N.P. I think you'll enjoy it. It took about 8 1/2 hours to do the loop. I was solo but it would be a good idea to have at least one other person out there with you in case of mechanical problems or injury. I spent 7 days in southeast Utah and didn't even scratch the surface of seeing what the area has to offer. What an amazing place!387.jpg417.jpg362.jpg

    Please tell us more! I have so wanted to TW the White Rim Trail since glimpsing it while rafting down the Green River. RDW has completed one of Utah's absolutely epic rides for those who don't know. Descending into Mineral Bottom on the Green River the White Rim Trail follows downstream to confluence with Colorado then up to Moab. About 100 mile loop through mind blowing escarpments and past Anazasi ruins and sculpted rock formations.
    I think RDW might have just completed the best ride of the year, wow!

    White rim is an awesome trail " about 130 miles round trip from the shell station just outside the park". What else did you ride?

    Lucky dog, White rim trail is on my bucket list.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    My friend Larry and I went to the Moab area a couple of years ago and found it to be a great adventure area. We hauled our TWs down from Idaho the end of March and spent most of a week down there. We mainly rode the area North and West of Moab. I really want to go back down there next spring and explore other areas.

    I would really enjoy a gathering of TW riders for a joint adventure. The end of March and first part of April are great down there as winter is about over and the heat is not set in yet.

    Ron in Boise may have just proposed a fantastic group ride far enough out there for us all to make plans. Dropping over the rim into the canyon for the first time is a breathtaking sense of adventure not soon forgotten as you descend multiple switchbacks sometimes carved from the cliff face. Not for those with a fear of heights. I think RDW's upcoming pictures should give us all something to drool over in the upcoming winter months.
    Looking forward to lots of pics and accompanying stories.

    I do propose that we plan for a Spring adventure. I have the luxury of being retired and can plan those kinds of adventures at my convenience. To be able to spend several days of leisurely exploration is my type of fun. I am not much into endurance runs where hundreds of mile are covered in a day but rather 50-60 miles rides and then gather in the evening around the campfire and share stories of the days events. An event with several days like this would make for a memorable trip.
    I think it would be marvelous if B-Dub from St. George could get the time off to be there too as he is a wealth of Utah adventure riding Knowledge.
    And if Fred could make it with his appreciation of Slick Rock it would enhance the whole experience.

    Happy Trails All

    Maybe RDW can lead us through places like this:
    or this?:

    Sorry to hijack thread RDW, just wanted to share a few videos that make me dizzy to watch. Humble apologies.
