Wood River Bike Trail Sun Valley Idaho

The Wood River Bike Trail is about 30 miles of paved paths along the Wood River in the Sun Valley area.  The section I rode started in Bellevue ID and followed the river to Ketchum ID.  The round trip for this section is about 40 miles.  You ride some of it close to the highway but the majority of it is along forested areas with views of the Sawtooth Mountains. 
The vehicle traffic in the area is bike friendly when you come to a crossing even on main street the motorist would stop and allow you to cross.  A great trail to ride with breath taking scenery along the way.  With a couple of added sections I made my first 50 mile ride on this trail a major step toward my goal of the 100 mile ride...

Fisher Towers Trail Moab UT

The Fisher Towers are composed of Menkopi and Cutler sandstones, and have eroded into many fantastical shapes.  Climbers occasionally scale these mud-stone towers.  The trail is 2.2 miles one way with an elevation gain of 670 feet.
As you can see from the pictures the views are fantastic. 








Even with my wide angle lens it is hard to grasp the size of the towers.  Looking at the specks that are hikers helps but you have to be there and look up to really appreciate the beauty and awe of it.




Nice place for lunch







The insert and the main pictures show the same climbers as they progress up the tower.

La Sal Mountains Loop Drive Moab UT

La Sal Loop
A beautiful scenic drive that runs from Hwy 128 at about 4000 feet elevation and loop thru the mountains with elevations over 8000 feet and ends up in Moab.  The drive is over 40 miles with some of the road under construction but well worth the drive.
