Off to college

Sidnee and I drove all night Thursday to get to Utah. This is what fishing looks like when you don’t sleep all night.

Guess who caught the only fish.

I was able to do an endowment session with Raven and Bryon in the Salt Lake Temple on Saturday.

I took Sidnee around BYU campus on Sunday and showed her around, pointing out things that may have “allegedly” happened many years ago.

Sidnee got us matching socks at Old Navy while she was applying for a job. That’s dangerous.

I was able to have lunch with Sidnee, Raven and Bryon before flying out Monday. It was a short trip, but very memorable. It’s hard to have her gone, but I know she is where she needs to be, and she has a great support system close at hand.

Fruita wrap up

We woke up to rain yesterday morning. We tried to wait it out but it got worse. It was still a fantastic road trip. Great trails, no mechanical problems and no accidents.Agent Peck returning his rental bike.
Our hotel. Thanks Mike Both’s dad.

Fruita part 2

Agent Peck joined us late last night so he could ride with us today and tomorrow. We dropped on to Mary’s Loop, then went counter-clockwise on Steve’s Loop. We got back on Mary’s Loop and rode out to Horse Thief Bench. That was an awesome section. We went back on Mary’s Loop and did Steve’s Loop clockwise. I felt sick at the beginning of the ride because I ate and drank too much, but I felt great for most of the ride. We put down 18 miles today. This picture is the Colorado River from Steve’s Loop.

This is Tim and Mike overlooking the Colorado River on Horse Thief Bench.

Fruita

Mike Both, Tim Shaw and I came down to Fruita, Colorado this morning. It is so beautiful here. We rode up Prime Rib, down Joe’s Ridge, then cut up Kessel. We rode down Prime Rib, up the road and down Kessel. After a 10 minute break we braved the heavy winds to go down Zippity Do Dah. We were losing daylight so we came down Kessel again.

This picture is Tim and Mike as we were climbing Prime Rib.
