White Rim Trail
After a restful sleep at the Rustic Inn in Moab, we headed out for the journey around the White Rim Trail 30 miles out. It is suppose to take all day and them some if you go the speed limit of 15mph...but we accomplished it in about 6 hours. It was nice to ride without all the bags and gear.
The first hour or so we had some big "puddles" to go through. This one was slick.
The rain followed us along our trip next to the Colorado River keeping it cool and overcast the whole day.
We got to play in the mud and the girls got dirty.
Rain behind, clear ahead.
I'm not defacing the canyon...I just really had to go.
This was a steep bit of a rocky climb.
Then we found some fun...and exploited it to its full potential.
And I mean full potential...I probably should have upgraded my front suspension.
After so many pictures, the rain was starting to catch up.
But then we found Muscleman Arch and had to stop again.
Then we had to get back out of the canyon.
An excellent day with no crashes and the last good day we have had...
