Considered a few locations to spend our Thanksgiving week vacation, but decided to explore some of the mountain biking trails in South Western Utah.  Very Nice!



Day 1:


GF first time on slick rock, she made the turn.


I love it:








Had dinner at Basilas Greek ( and Italian!? ) food in St. George.  Good salads, french fries, hummus , and chicken, but my 2 gyros were just ok.

Day 2:













Unreal:






Taking in the view:


Added a couple bonus trails to get my $$$'s worth.








Dinner at someplace advertising Bison Burgers:


Day 3:




Almost ate it goofing off on this interesting cattle guard near the upper trailhead:


Seemed big at the time...






Day 4:
Rain in the forecast, so we woke up at 6 am and rode a few hours not far from the motel prior to the rain storm.














Cafe Rio for dinner.  Got the burrito with "hot" red sauce...very good, but not much spice.


Day 5:
Rainy.  So we went hiking.








Made Thanksgiving Dinner in the microwave.  It was pretty good.


Day 6:
Drive home.  No traffic issues, some slowing in Vegas.

Day 7:
Recover.

Day 8:
Rode Nobel Canyon ( local trail ).  Windy as hell riding up the fire road.  Didn't see a single person on my loop around Laguna meadow.  Nobel Canyon trail in excellent condition.  Even the slog up extra credit was not too sandy.

The end.

Nice supplies.   Laughing

So exactly where were you?  Just outside Zion NP?  Or were you a little further north in Red Rock Canyon (I think that's the name)?
