Bike Zion


People who have been reading this blog for awhile will know that I periodically head down to the St. George area to visit family, play on the family (Rabbit & Raven) farm, and do some biking.  The riding was cut short a bit by the less than wonderful wet conditions that left the red dirt a sludgy red clay that gummed up the Gunnar Crosshairs pretty good.  But the views were spectacular as usual and left me longing for spring break in April when the riding and temperatures should be a lot better.  Here is a gallery of pics from my Christmas day ride.

The black gate...I mean giant gate to Romneyland

No wonder it was so hard to pedal!

In the park...

Chainstays are not supposed to look like that!

Nice. So waiting for the warm weather to return northern Colorado.

Beautiful outing! Even with the mud-push!

Wow, what a very cool place - other than the mud.

The photos are outstanding. The one you label "in the park" looks like a Thomas Moran painting! You could sell prints of that photo and I'll be your first buyer!
