Spring Break

I've been gone. I'm not feeling very wordy so here is a photo blog of my trip.

This is the top of the climb up on Gold Bar Rim. Cold clear day.

Looking in the other direction from the same spot here is Steve finishing the haul up the final piece of slickrock. Huge views from here in all directions.

We rode White Rim via Long Canyon

114.2 miles for that loop

The Shafer climb was closed by the park. They had a gate across the road closed in the middle of the desert - cracked me up so I had to take a photo of it! There is no fence. Just the gate sitting closed all out in the open by itself. What was the point!


Murphy's Hogback is one of my favorite views. We had a long lunch stop here.



Muscleman Arch

Refilling on the way. There had been so much rain we didn't need to carry much water with us as we just scooped up pothole water on the way.

Although it was a 114 mile ride we took a lazy pace, made lots of stops and had a mellow time. White Rim is so beautiful is was nice to take the time to enjoy it.

Hey girl...ok, so I finally had time to look at your site again. Super website! Again, incredible job on OP! It's great to see you back at your competitive ways after the break. Plus, you are stronger than ever...you gotta love the proper application of power-based training, eh?? :) :)

So I just saw this out on cyclingnews.com...are you going to do it? This would be perfect for you and I don't know who else could stay with you overall in a series. Let me know!! Gotta go, but drop me an email. talk to you soon...

I sent you an e mail yesterday but it got bounced. What e mail is good for you now? I want to know how Kim is coming along with her nutritionist coaching business. I need help.

I would so, so, so love to do that 100 mile series and could carve out the time to do it but don't have the $$$. 100 milers are my favorite distance. Know anybody who want's to back me? I'm doing the E-100 for sure. That one is a classic.
