With fresh tires we set out to see what Moab had to offer.
It was already a bit late in the day, so we decided we'd take a spin around Arches.
As darkness set in, the most amazing lightening storm I have ever seen could be seen on the horizon. This was as close as I got to capturing it before my camera ran out of batteries.
We headed back into town planning to check out the Canyonlands the following day via the amazing 150 mile long White Rim Trail.
We checked back into our motel next to these fellow adventurers.
We woke up uncharacteristically early to sample the continental breakfast hoping to start the trail before the worst of the heat set in.
The ride into Canyonlands was pretty unreal.
Finally on the White Rim Trail proper we enjoyed a day of fun and varied riding encountering everything from mud, to slick rock, to loose sand.
Did I mention that we encountered a few canyons along the way.
All in all it was an amazing day of riding. We saw two trucks the entire day, and had the park to ourselves. As much as we loved Moab and would have loved to check out more of the trails, our schedule was getting tight. Rob had to make it home in time for a flight back to New York, and we were anxious to get moving again on the TAT.
