Tour of Southern Utah Day 3: Gooseberry Love

We had planned to ride with the group in the day and mosey on our exploratory tour in the afternoon but we had so much fun, we decided to spend another night at the yurt.
There’s not a lot to say about this day except 1) super fun biking with friends and 2) jaw dropping scenery.
The photos can’t even come close but here are a few of my favorites.

We rode North Rim trail which has plenty of spots to challenge even pro riders.

If you look very hard, you can just pick out the top of the yurt across the mesa.

Post ride activities included a complete solar shower for both of us, a nap for Drew and blogging for me, beers at the edge of the mesa, and another camp dinner.

A solar shower after the ride yielded sand on our soap: a natural loofah.

Last night’s sunset was nice, but this night knocked our socks off!!!

After sunset, we made campfire pizzas and drank more cans of beer and boxes of wine. Our extra night of Gooseberry layover was worth the stay.
