Moab - some pics from this weekend.

The weather is perfect! Go now before the heat sets in











I back flipped my 500 in double whammy and broke everything from the seat back



fun to watch the RZRs go across golden crack



somewhere on poison spider


..after my back flip I was a bit gun shy so I kept getting stuck in stupid places by not committing enough



camp couldn't have been better





from the top of golden spike you can see all the way across and through double arch!
Can you imagine what the first settlers thought when they arrived here on horse back and though "we gotta cross that???? "



somewhere on goldbar


Moab below - the bright hills in the center are the slickrock park:

Camping on a nice rock slab is like having a wonderful cement patio.

I was there this weekend. Perfect weather. It was the first trip of the year, so I made sure to dislocate my salute finger doing an endo on Salt Canyon Trail. Fortunately, it popped back in place and I could ride out. I had forgotten just how technical the top part of that trail is.

Great pics. Any chance Paul had the GoPro on you for the back flip?

Also, don't the bikes go in the Sprinter? Why the trailer?
