After spending a month in Nevada we moved a state and we’re up in Utah. We didn’t make it very far though, we’re back in Hurricane, UT. We have been here a handful of times over the past couple decades and love it. Last time we stayed at some friends’ property but we’re boondocking this year over at the cliffs. It took some work because the roads are very rough and the spots are so spread out, but we have a nice private spot with nobody around and beautiful views of Zion and some snow dappled Pine Valley Mountains behind us.
Our first ride was somewhere we hadn’t ridden before out at the Prospector Trail. We mountain biked 14.2 miles with 1180′ of climbing. The riding out here is easier than most of the area around Hurricane. I’m still taking it pretty easy on my elbow so the really technical rocky stuff probably won’t happen this time here. We rode out to and up into the red sandstone cliffs that this area is famous for. Extending the ride, we added on Church Rocks loop for a fun mostly slickrock loop.
As I’ve mentioned, our camera has been limping along. For half of the ride today it simply wouldn’t turn on. So, we missed a couple of really cool pictures unfortunately. Never fear, Derek figured this was coming soon and ordered us a new one. Full time RV living can be challenging when you buy stuff online. We boondock 99% of the time so we don’t have a place to ship things to. Derek found a small shipping store to have the new camera delivered to and after our ride we stopped and picked it up. Yay, the pictures will continue!.
