We kind of got lucky with the weather. It could have been 90 degrees, it could have been 30 degrees. Not knowing what to expect of the weather in May we welcomed the 70 degree temperature, the clouds and the occasional wind. (Floy) White Wash is truly an amazing area. The land scape is similar to Moab but vastly different at the same time. At the moment this is my favorite place to ride. I rode the Cow Freckle trail for the fist time. What an amazing trail. It runs parallel with Ten Mile Wash and ends 6 tenths of a mile from entering the wash. They shut it down by putting up a fence stating no motorized travel. We were forced to ride the trail backwards which was fun but how cool would it be to have it connect right into Ten Mile Wash.
It was a good weekend to be in Moab. It was mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain. The temperature was around 70 and breezy. We spent a lot of time goofing off on the Golden Spike and Poison Spider trails. We started at the Gemini Bridges parking and headed straight to Golden Spike. Normally we ride over to Poison Spider and back but we found ourselves having a friendly competition to see who could dab the fewest times as we played follow the leader up ledges and down drop offs. The loop took us hours longer than it should have just because of our constant zig zagging.
Riding in Moab a couple weeks after Jeep Safari turned out to be awesome because the trails were freshly marked with new paint and a good layer of rubber from the jeeps. There were several people on the trails but really not too busy for this time of the year.
