We rode the great JEM mountain bike trail outside of St George for 15 miles. I’m not great with anything super technical and this was just right (besides a couple of spots riding by a cliff… thoughts of tipping over on my bike and going off the edge tend to overtake me, ha ha). We couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. It was just cloudy enough and sunny enough at the same time. It felt great and we could really soak in the beauty of everything around us. Red rock against blue sky never gets old. Very serene and stunning.
We had some time in our schedule, so we decided to bust over to Zion to hike Angel’s Landing. We did this a few years ago with the kids and it brought back a lot of memories. If anything, it reminded me how brave our kids are/were. Truman in particular did not seem phased by the portions of the hike that provide significant exposure. This time, we passed a dude from Chicago so scared he was crawling up the trail near the end.
