So the 23 hour drive was much better than I thought. We made it to Fruita at 1:30ish on Wed. and got a nice little 7 mile ride in at 18 road.

The drive was much more interesting once we hit Colorado.

Here is my Dad riding Chutes and Ladders

My mom clearing a nice boulder on the trail

This is what it is all about. Seeing the trails miles away!!!

Me climbing one of the steeps. Cameras have horrible depth perception

Some of the downhills are really steep and fast, but they are smooth.

Here is my mom and I after a long climb up to 5600ft.

The weather has been great. Both days have been in the 80's and the biker tans are starting to take shape. Tommorrow we are off to meet one of my mom's relatives (Craig) and go ride the Kokapelli trails. These trails are supposed to be a little more technical and rocky. The riding here is awesome, fast singletrack. We will be riding in the Colorado National Monument Sat then somewhere in Fruita Sun morning before heading off to Moab after our ride on Sunday morning.

Sweet pictures. I'm planning a trip out to Colorado this summer. I don't think I'm going to make it all the way to Fruita though. I've heard there's some pretty sweet trails in that area.

Yeah, the trails are sweet. They are much more technical and rocky dropoffs than MI. It is worth coming out. Only 5.5 hrs from Denver, then 100 miles out to Moab from here.
