We headed south through that unique Utahan landscape of other worldly arches and towers to Moab, one of the outdoor meccas. We camped right on the Colorado River just a few miles outside of town. Bill took the Poison Spider Bicycle shuttle up to do the famous Mountain bike trail, Porcupine Rim. This is an eighteen mile single track ride that drops from about 8,000 feet to 4,000 feet and ends right at our campground. This is a very technical, challenging ride which hugs the edge of a thousand foot cliff for much of the distance. Bill survived although he admits to walking some of the more difficult sections. Oh, I could not resist including a pic of the campgrounds "rest room" with its unique view.
