Rain, mud, lucky find and more rain

TuesdayThe rain that threatened yesterday arrived in the middle of the night.Woke to wet ground and overcast skies.  After breakfast at a local cafe, Dan K decided to leave a day early for Moab, can't say I blame him.  The off pavement trails around here, being soaking wet, are not rideable!After Dan left, I decided to try and find the lock which had bounced out of my unsecured top case yesterday afternoon on the trail where I did the test ride after Yagi's suspension work.Did I mention things w...

T-Dubing in the Sand Flats Recreation Area

The Sand Flats Recreation Area, the northern entrance of which is located in the city of Moab, provides the local area with camping sites, slick rock and 4x4 Jeep trails and lots of room for hikes and such.I rode there today to do a recon of the campsites and see as to their functionality for future use in terms of space and 4G cellular signal.BLUF:  I only found one campground in the recreation area with decent signal, specifically Juniper 8.  The other campsites I stopped at were for cars and ...

Training on loose sand, experimenting with tire air pressures

Today's primary objective after work was to train/work on riding on loose sand, something that proved quite difficult at times in the last couple of days.  I got to a small stretch leading to the Mill Canyon Trailhead and began trying different air pressure levels. Started off at 13 PSI, not very stable and much use of the "outriggers", my feet dabbing the sand in order to remain upright. Lowered it to 11 PSI on the front and 10 in the rear.  Better handling with some occasional dabbing.  ...

T-Dubing to the Canyonlands National Park

Today was a ride to familiar locations, Shaffer Trail and the sights of Canyonland National Park.  These locations are west of Moab along Utah 313, a nicely paved road with some curvy sections to keep motorcycle riders entertained. Today's sunrise was "OK" For the record, it's almost 12 miles to the Archview RV Campground which is located at the junction of 191 and 313.  From there it's about 24 miles more to Shaffer's Trail so not a long ride.  I would end up filling up Yagi's small tank both...

The Truth Can Get You Killed

Luke 4:14-30 I find this one of the most disturbing readings of Jesus’ ministry. Jesus had just been baptized by John in the Jordan River, and he was praying. And the Spirit of God wrapped around him like a dove. And God, the Holy One of Israel, the Father, appeared to him and boomed out, “You are my Son, my Beloved. In you I am well pleased” (Lk 3:22). That must have swept him off his feet. If he had had doubts, struggled with those inner forces that were driving him to something, but what h...

Proud Flesh and the Scars of Priesthood

It’s late afternoon. Canted light sweeps across a rolling plain bunched with junipers. Their branches, like the arms and shoulders of swimmers, stroke against waves of scented wind, the whoosh and warp of the sound as soft as chant inside a chapel. We pull up our horses and gaze across the cedar sea. In the distance, Permian cliffs, smooth and slick, spark in the broken light. On the slopes, screes of rock return the glare. Gems hewn in hues of red and amber. We dismount. My riding partn...

Mountain biking in Andorra

With peaks topping 11,000 feet and many of Europe’s most challenging ski resorts and backcountry terrain, the Pyrenees mountains are already top of mind for many alpine enthusiasts. For mountain bikers, the Andorra formula is a simple one: Take the varied terrain of Moab and the steeps of the nearby Alps and blend them together. Leave the crowds behind, but add in duty-free shopping and culinary chops that pull from both neighboring Spain and France. It’s an incredible combination, and you ne...

Week 19: Valley of the Gods and Moab, Utah

Life can slip on past you real fast. You can get so caught up in present moment challenges and the future goals that you forget where you have come from. You fail to see all you have achieved because you’re so focused on what is left to come. Hustle replaces humility. Fisher Towers Hike, Moab, Utah I love how travel humbles me. I sit under a starry sky and I can’t help but feel small. I’m no more or less important than the stars. I am but a tiny speck, and yet that speck is part of something...

Shoulder Season Sucks…or Not?

We all have our preferences on seasons. Snow vs. Sun. Ski vs. Bike. It’s hard to choose sometimes and when this time of year rolls around we can get antsy. Well…maybe not as much this year with such epic spring skiing and continued storms, but you get the point. Plus, I’m guilty of a trip to Moab already and enjoying some time on two wheels.  Shoulder season is generally when we all anxiously await the arrival of our next favorite activity. With the shift of seasons, it can be difficult in mount...

Best hikes near the Rocky Mountains

Spring is upon us. The Rocky Mountains and its sub-ranges are beginning to shed snow, colorful wildflowers are in bloom, and hiking trails that have been accessible only to cross-country skis and fat bikes for the past few months are opening up to eager hikers. Spring hiking focuses more on canyons than scrambles and meadows than summits, and these five towns are the place to base yourself for epic spring hikes throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
