And here I was complaining about the overnight Moab temperatures in the 30's. Looks much colder here. Of course, we didn't have to ride in this spot...which would have been much colder also by the looks of it.Heading home. I should have tried to start Mr. Putter up here. 20°F and 12,000 foot elevation. View attachment 214003
I've flown the drone at that temp and altitude before, but not at the same time. Had to pause in a hover to warm up batts. Got some more fortunately timed sun.

Excellent!!Last ride day in Moab for 2021. Bodie left late afternoon the day before, Pupsocket and Trialrun left today and Appleguy took the day off so it was myself, psnunami, psnunamison, stig, and CookieMonster.
We had planned to ride Sand Flat's Hell's Revenge, Fins & Things, and Slickrock Singletrack. However, my oldest son (CookieMonster) was a bit worn out from the previous day's ride (so was I) so we changed plans. This was CookieMonster's first trip to Moab so everything was new to him. He asked to see Gemini Bridges. So, with that our plans changed and we headed out on the trail.

Then we rode out to Hey Joe Canyon. It was a good day to ride.

I had another great week of riding in Moab with some of the nicest folks around. Thanks to MikeK to start this even though he couldn't attend. Take care everybody and "ride on"!
I knew the drone shots would be cool. Stu and I drove out to the Thelma & Louise point. I wasn't exactly sure the movie was shot here but knew it was in the general area. A couple of days ago I watched the ending of the movie to verify. Then you note it in your video. So cool!On Tuesday, TrialRun led me over Hurrah Pass and nearly to the end of Chicken Corners. I was too chicken to walk the narrow ledge around the last corner. This is a quick edit of some of the drone footage captured during this ride. Apologies in advance for the lack of motorcycles; they are yet to come. I left Moab Wednesday morning, and only returned Saturday afternoon after an unplanned extra day on the road.
