Four Towers in Canyonlands, by Mountain Bike
Friday November 13, 2009 12:26am
This is a trip I did a few years back with some friends in the Canyonlands. A fun and unqiue trip. Looking back I dont know why we added so much extra suffering! But it goes to show how you can ratchet up the adventure by just leaving a couple things behind, like your car, and water.

I wrote an article on it, shelved it, and never published it - I have posted it on my blog in two parts with photos. Enjoy

(this one will link to the second one)

Quite an interesting trip report.

A proud acheivement for sure. The great photos and discussion of challenging group dynamics were valuable details.

Water in the desert is a precious thing indeed.

Thanks for the great TR!
