We spent two full days of our vacation mountain biking in the red hills of southern Utah. And we would have biked more if our rear ends would have let us! Ouch. It was a blast! Biking is a challenge (that I often try only to fail) and a thrill. I gained a lot of confidence on this trip, learning to choose the right lines, using my momentum to climb over rocks, and taking my hand off the brake to careen downhill. It was soooo much fun! How often do you get good exercise and an adrenaline rush all at once? Take me back!
^^Our comrades, Nick and Amy^^
^^I love that this is something we enjoy doing together!^^
^^My new and super cool sunglasses^^
^^Just look at those views! (I'm not talking about us. hehe) The trails often led us around the edges of breathtaking cliffs. I felt surprisingly in control and safe though.^^
^^Real ancient Indian petroglyphs. Doesn't this look like they outlined children's feet? Very cool to see.^^
Till next time, mountain bikes!
