Weird is the new Normal

Devil’s Canyon Area near Fruita

Went for a little hike near Devil’s Canyon the other day. Me and about everyone else in Fruita. The parking lot was full on a Wednesday. I’m glad to see everyone who lives in the valley getting out. Less glad to see people coming from Covid-19 hot spots to vacation here. I just hope they buy LOTS of take-out to keep our restaurants open!

Next time I’m going to put some distance between me and the peeps

Here I’m practicing physical distancing. I’m about 50 miles from the nearest person

Took the Huskie Adventure-450 out for a spin. Traced down some old RR tracks from a mine north of Baxter Pass. The RR bed is rideable in a few places. In many others it’s missing or on private land so I got thwarted in my quest to ride it from 4-road all the way to Cisco, UT. Didn’t see another human for over 100 miles. Cows though, lots of cows

Flowers on the trail

Some of the early desert plants are up and smiling!

Putting some distance between me and the next person. About ten miles to them at this point

Took a trip out in the west desert with the mountain bike. Got lost. Front brake failed. Had a great time! The desert is perfect for human happiness this week

This is what I get for bringing a pedal bike on a motorcycle trail. Switch-backs are for the weak-legged!

I followed some Motor-bike trails into the piñons near the Utah border for fun one day. Moto don’t need no switch-backs! I did a fair amount of hike-a-bike and it was glorious! I also go a little lost

I was pretty lost at this point in the ride. Glad to know I’m near Clarke USA 21-14. Helps a lot …
