A blog featuring the hobbies I pursue (vegetable gardening, biking and skiing) when not chasing my kids.

White Rim 2012
After much anticipation and lots of bullying, I managed to get my Dad and a few friends to join me on the White Rim 100 mile bike ride in Canyonlands NP. The weather and group couldn't have been better, though a little slower riding by Chester and less sand would have been nice.
The day prior to beginning the trek, we hiked to see the sun set on Delicate Arch along with every other tourist in Moab.

We talked on the drive about how we never see any big animals in the desert. Then we saw this Bighorn sheep later in the day.
