fun times in southern utah
just got back from a great trip to southern utah. we first went to the brian head area to meet smithers, vanessa, mark and amanda, but it was snowing sideways at navajo lake and brianhead had 4" of fresh snow and they were plowing the road! we all bailed to a spot i knew from years back in the desert near three peaks outside of cedar city with mountainbike trails and bouldering for a few days while it cleared up and thawed out in the high country. once it melted we headed back up to the high country for biking some of the 60 or so miles of the virgin river rim and navajo lake trails with great views of zion natl' park and the grand staircase.we also got in some great trout fishing in navajo lake, caught 8 nice rainbows and a brookie. must have had 20 hookups that day, the trout were supercharged and were doing spectacular jumps and runs! the water is gin clear so you can see it all. sure is a great area with alot to offer and not alot of trail users for how awesome it is! now back to work........steve.
