Tough Day At The Office

My dad sold the building in Moab, but we still have the lot next to it. Problem is, it's just dirt, so it grows weeds really fast. Every once in a while we need to go down and maintain those weeds. So today for work Liesel and I drove down and sprayed weeds. While we were at it, we decided to take our bikes and do a ride. This is a singletrack trail system at Dead Horse Point that follows around the rim. It was WAY fun and had AMAZING views the whole ride. Sadly, this is the only picture I got and it was with my cell phone. Looks like we'll just have to go back :)

Biking Close To Home

There is a group of guys in our new ward that are big into biking, and they talk about it all the time. I'd heard about these bike trails above Price, but never really looked into it. One of my friends, Jacob Petty, took a bike class at CEU and had an idea where some of the trails are. So on friday I had him show me one called Lukes Trail. It is a singletrack trail through the cedar trees and along some canyon rims and is about 2.5 miles long, then a couple miles on dirt roads back to the truck.

It was such a fun trail that a couple days later I had to bring Liesel and Tripp to try it out. They Loved it too. Tripp likes to lead and she is really good at following the trail, even when we're hiking.

I don't know if it is because I grew up here, but I think Price and the surrounding area is BEAUTIFUL! I love cedar trees and dusty desert plateaus. And sagebrush.

It makes having bikes that much more fun being able to go ride some sweet trails right in our backyard.
