Below are some photos from yesterday.  We did a lap of the Colorado National Monument, which was the course the Coor’s Classic used for Tour of the Moon. I’ve maybe ridden 20+ laps of that loop, but I’m not sure ever just riding. Only racing.  It is beautiful and well worth the journey.

In Moab now.  I haven’t been here in ages.  It has really changed.  So many tourists.  Lots and lots of bikers.

We’re going  on a couple MTB rides.  Now I’m late, again.  Tucker ditched me out running.  Okay, some photos below. Or above.  (iPhone post.)

    Pretty good day of photography with the big horn sheep. Pros with 500mm lenses go out there for weeks without seeing a single one.

    When I first went to Moab in ’72, the area was called Utah’s little Appalachia. Now Moab has become the epicenter of fossil-fueled recreation.

      I was there this time of year once when it wasn’t. You could still ride a bike anywhere you wanted to in Canyonlands NP it was so long ago; they were still called “cruisers” and had long sidepull brakes. The weather relented after a few days and Needles Campground is still the most intense full moon ride I’ve ever experienced.

      Nasty comment about Steve’s training partners. I downvoted you Cliffy.

    Are the cattle grates still across the road there ? Did you jump them like in the Coors Race of yore ?
