MTB Zion (Wire Mesa)

 )We were in Southern Utah this past week(family trip) and was able to fit in half day of riding.. Desert riding is incredible. The solitude , heat and dehydration are a few things we don't deal with back east.
I rented a top of the line Trek from Zion Cycle , They gave me directions to Wire Mesa and told me to have fun. First he said I would have a mile or so climb on a dirt road to get to the trail head...BULLSHIT!!! 2miles of the steepest dustiest lose rock road I ever broke my ass on...It was sooo worth it!! Wire Mesa is a 8mile loop of the most beautiful and cool riding I have ever done..Here's some pics..I have included the worst selfie in history..yeah I look horrible..

My best help is some advice: Get a droid pretty boy.

Seriously, nice work Jason.

Jason,
I discovered the solution to the sideways iPhone pics. Go into edit for each photo, open the crop tool, rotate it 360 degrees, crop a hairs width off the edge and save it.

Looks like a great trip by the way

We need to get together for a ride there so you can show me the trails. I'm about 5 miles as the crow flies.
