White Rim is a great run, it does take all day but it is pretty easy riding. Great scenery though.

Rob, if you want a run to cool down on, try the LaSale Mountain Loop. We could not complete the trip last November because on the snow and ice. There is some great photo opps. from the look out.

Moab...stinkin hot!!

Well today was ride day! Started out early in the morning to beat the heat, didn't work

I rode up to the start of Kane Canyon road...more like a trail. It was nice and easy, bouncing along enjoying scenery, splashing thru parts of the creek here and there, then it got a little rough...and rougher and soon I was looking at the gps and it was saying that the road was on the other side of the creek at that point and had been for awhile. I was on some homemade ATV rock crawling trail and I had no idea how I got there. I had passed parts that I didn't want to tackle going back, so I continued on. I came to one section that had 3 angled ledges and I picked the wrong line..too late! I new the back end would kick out as I hit the first ledge about 1 and a half feet in height, no problem. Hit the second ledge and this time the rear did the same thing...that's good...what I didn't expect is that when the rear hit the hard rock ground again, it hooked up 100 percent throwing me off balance and when I hit the third ledge...game over down I went, grinding 1 inch off the grip and throtle assembly. This is good, I thought. Middle of nowhere. Fortunatly, it still worked and I eventually made the real trail and made it out...alive

Splashing thru Kane Creek - self portrait, very hard to time!!


Getting rough


and rougher


By now it was stinkin hot, so I figured I'd do the La Sal Mountain Loop that BackRoader had mentioned. I set off up the road and was headed off at the start by some wandering cattle...keep and eye out for these guys! The going was pretty rough but I continued on. It got rougher and rougher as I neared the top but I figured if BackRoader can do it, I could Soon it got steep and was all loose rock, one miscalculation and I stalled the bike in the middle of the steep section. Now it wouldn't start..too hot...had to wait about half and hour and finally it started. Thru that section and on to the next...oh, more rock. Should I say, all rock. That's what this one section was, just rock. I don't know how far you made it up BackRoader but if you made it thru this section with ice and snow...hats off to you! I rode it like a bucking bronco and finally came out to pastures okay, this is easier anyway. Finally the road levelled off and I was at the top of the pass 10,262 feet on my gps. Started at 4500 feet. The road on the other side going down to hwy 46 was like riding on the freeway, only dustier! 167kms riden today and I'm beat, it's 35c and that's enough riding for today! Oh ya, BackRoader, if a couple of degrees difference is "cooler", than you were spot on!

watch out for these guys


steep and rocky


did I mention...rocky! Ya, that's the road!!


at the top of the pass

Did you buy the Maps ?

No, it was still closed when I left this morning. Did you go in off of hwy 191 or hwy 46? I went in off of 191 and it is marked La Sal Loop. Goes right thru and over to hwy 46. If you went in from hwy 46 you would have gone thru a big stand of cool poplar trees and it would have been a nice gravel road that curved and climbed up to the top.

We took a road that ran through Castle Valley, up towards the mountain, however the temp. drop to 0c around 4pm so we did not go any further. Our next attempt was up from Slick Rock, but we ran into heavy snow on the road and had to give up there as the bikes were starting to get pretty warm.
The 3rd attempt was the paved road, which we managed to take as far as the 8000 foot lookout. Snow and ice finished our last attempt.
Sounds like you got your money's worth.
