I really haven't fallen off the face of the earth...


...But there were a few times during the past week where I could have if I really wanted to.


I recently returned from a week-long vacation to Bryce and Zion National Parks with my mom. We did lots of hiking (probably about 35 miles worth over the course of 5 days) and I really didn't do much bike riding to speak of. I did manage to go over the bars while road riding in Bryce due to a really, really lame rider error, but we won't talk about that.


I did see lots of spectacular scenery, experienced a bit of an unexpected snowstorm in Bryce, and took lots of fabulous hikes. Zion is by far one of my favorite National Parks; I managed to scale the famed (and strenous) Angel's Landing trail for the second time over the past year.


Anyhow, today was my first day back at work and it was, needless to say, crazy. I do have a couple of new posts I'm working on, so I'll try to wrap them up soon.


Ciao!

A trip to Utah and no MTB'ing!!?? OUCH. Sounds like you had a blast though and that's what really matters. Welcome back.

Last year my fiance and I visited Bryce and Zion and The Grand Canyon and Moab and and and...

If I (a Canadian) had any doubts as to who won that little war of revolution it was put to rest seeing the plethora of natural wonders that are packed into such a small portion of your country. Sigh.

Sounds fun. Different than what I am doing this summer, but more or less of the same.
I'm going up to Alaska for a week and a half to go hiking, fishing, canoeing, biking, and camping. A whole week and a half in salmon season.
Sounds like lots of fun that you had in Utah though!

Zion & Bryce and pretty much all the rest of Utah is inspiring and beautiful country. I also enjoy hiking almost as much as I enjoy cycling. Glad you and your mom had a great time.

All I can say is that I'm jealous. Very.
