Near Hurricane, Utah * September 26th – 29th, 2007
The 2nd Annual, post Interbike, Gooseberry Mesa, trail bike extravaganza and camp-out was an unbelievable time. We rode just about every trail section on GM and one trail twice!
On the trail:
Video: don’t look if you’re acrophobic
What the hell is a Gooseberry?
This is the Gooseberry bush that dominates the mesa.
Area 51 & UFOs
We took the Extraterrestrial Highway (Nv 375) back thru central Nevada. What a cool road – probably the most remote area in the continental USA!
While we were out in the boonies we found Warm Springs – a place that Randy visited on an Outward Bound trip as a teenager. The place has a big pool where visitors could soak in the hot water. He’d forgotten where Warm Springs was located (it’s at the junction of 375 & 6), and had wondered about the place over the years – it was fun to find it again. Unfortunately the operation is now defunct and they’re piping the hot water off for some other use.
