We then made our way to Moab with a stop at Arches National Park. A little tip, if you have several cars and will be combining drivers into one to drive around the park. Let the folks at the entrance know. They will let your other group come in without paying.

Arches as always offers impressive views

After checking out Arches made a stop to Poison Spider Bike Shop and then called The Whole Enchilada shuttle company to reserve seats for the shuttle tomorrow morning. Then finally located our Condo where we would call home for the next few days. If you are looking to rent a place for a Moab trip check out www.moabcondorentals.com

This was on the wall around the patio of the Condo. No doubt Mountain Bikers are welcome here.

Tomorrow we find out how the bodies will react to pedalling at 11,156’ already know it’s going to be hard to breath. I’ve ridden Lower Porcupine previously can’t wait to check out what is high up.
