3 Bikes And A Boat

A quick blast down to Vegas and Hurricane Utah. A week solo, then picked up Joannie at the Vegas airport and spent another week. Adventures were fat rafting Lake Mead, riding Bootleg Canyon and Gooseberry Mesa, a day at Red Rock and riding Cottonwood Valley -North (Mustang). The biggest challenge was getting my truck packed with 3 bikes, camping gear, climbing gear, canyon gear and paddle gear.
