We’ve added a blog for Trish and M, they are listed in the Menu above, please take a look!
This morning I got out for a 20 mile ride that included an 800 foot vertical climb up Highway 9 to the Eastside Tunnel. You know it’s a good climb when multiple legs of the road can be seen in the same photo:
On the way up I was treated to a great view of Zion Arch:
On the way back to the RV, I stopped in at South Campground and met Mike of LightCurve.com. I’ve been following his blog for some time now, so it was nice to meet him and his dog Blue in person!
After lunch, we hiked up a local hill to look down canyon:
Next, we hiked the Watchman Trail, which leads to an overlook:
The weather got a little ominous:
We were rained on for 15 minutes or so, but then the sun came back out:
After completing the hike, we drove to a petroglyph site that Mike had recommended:
Yummy rock texture:
Tonight we had a campfire and roasted hot dogs. Tomorrow we will be leaving Zion through the East entrance. The width limit for going through the tunnel without a pilot car (and paying a fee) is 7’ 10”, and we’re 7’ 9.75”, so it will be interesting to see if we’re let through.
