We woke to another sunny day with clear blue skies, and decided to go and ride the Sovereign trail in the morning.

On the way to the trail we stopped and looked at the dinosaur tracks at The Sauropod Dinosaur Tracksite which is 23 miles north of Moab on the east side of US 191

It was a quite easy ride , and there were a fair few people riding it in both directions. We finished fairly early at 1.30pm and headed back into Moab and had another Hogi Yogi, then had a look around the shops , it was very hot about 30c. Slick Rock Trail MTB ride, Moab

When you do fall on slick rock you wish that you were wearing body armour. I scarped a load of skin off my elbow, and scraped off the scabs already on my leg.
