Tour de St. George - A Few More Photos

Brenda sent me a few more photos from our adventure in St. George, Utah last night so I thought I would share them.  

You can see the whole album on Flickr HERE.

Here are a few more of the highlights:

 A bit blurry but you can tell the theme of the day is FUN!

Typical road during the ride.  Rural and a bit bumpy but the view makes up for it

Smile never left my face all day

A fellow participant from Utah also stopped to admire the view and take our picture.  
Utah is a very friendly state

In the last 5kms of the ride we took a turn on to the off road bike path.  
This section of the bike path goes through a driving range.  FOUR!

In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
