    Here we go! this is going to very pic heavy "i narrowed it down to around 150 pics" and may take a few days to complete. We rolled into Moab around 2pm on Sunday so we started off by setting up camp off of Willow Springs road. It was free primative camping on BLM land and its off of 191 just north of 313 which is the entrance to Canyonlands NP. Very nice and quiet area.

    My buddy Matt and I "George aka smalls" rode with Ron and Larry for half a day around the Sovereign trais.

    Once Ron & Larry called it a day we ran to Moab and played on Hell's Revenge before it got dark. What a hoot.

    Day two. Matt and i woke up when the sky was just getting blue so we ate some breakfest and got ready to ride bright and early. We decided that morning that we should probably hit the White Rim trail this day because we were still good and fresh and the White Rim is a long day. It took us about 9 hours total. We stopped alot for pics and food breaks so we werent in any real hurry and we wanted to soak up the scenery. There is a Shell station at 191&313. This is the closest gas station to the trail. It was 129 mile round trip from the gas station. Matt had just switched to reserve about 5 miles from the station on our way back. We also did some back and forth riding and a bit of exploring along the White Rim. For some reason i forgot to load up a pick of the Shafer switchbacks which is an awesome site to see and its at the beginning of the trail if ridin in the clockwise direction which seems like the way to go.i

    white rim by gfalexan, Most of our pics have a bike in them somewhere just to have something to relate size to. Here is a pic of Musselman Arch. We had some mountain bikers take our pic. We only seen two bikes, a few jeeps and about 40 mountain bikers all day. I really wanted to

    This one here had me puckering a bit. I rode out onto that rock and my right foot was about 2 feet from the edge. It goes down alot farther than were the pic stops.

    Wow, with my fear of heights I think some depends might be a good choice for a base layer riding around the White Rim!



    Just incredible.

    its hard to tell from the pic but this dirt looked like virgin fresh groomed motocross dirt so we just had to get a pic of each of us trying to get the TW in a bit of a slide.
