Moab-

When we got to Moab on Saturday it started POURING DOWN RAIN!!! However, Sunday the rain looked like it might actually be over. We had quite a mixed group of riders, in terms of experience, so we settled on a more simple ride. Josh lead the way, with us, Paul, and Ray on our bikes, and Bill & Lori following in the Jeep. Well, after a few wrong turns (sorry Josh! gotta tell the truth!) we found the dirt ride we intended to go on. It started sprinkling at about the point you see us stop at the ledge. Ray and Dave were riding with street tires, and we really knew that if it started to rain in ernest, it could get slick in a hurry. So, we reluctantly turned back, while Josh & Paul pushed on in the trail, which went down into the "bowl" we looked down into. That night we were all to meet up with the other riders at Eddie McStiffs to get riding ideas, figure out who wanted to go where, etc.
