I bought a cheap point and shoot camera to take mountain biking on this trip. The scenery was so absolutely stunning on this trip that I have decided to go big on the file sizes of these photos. Sorry for the slow load and I'm going to include less photos per post than usual.
First - the cast of Characters. Megan, Aaron, and the new official WTW trip brew: Stone Brewing (thanks Ted)

- Warm weather
- Outstanding riding and hiking opportunities
- Beautiful scenery
Wrapping all these requirements into a single vacation can be a challenge so to get the spa requirement out of the way we booked a room at the Cedar Breaks Lodge in Brian Head Utah. Of course, going to a ski resort in May isn't the best idea in the world and we found that the spa wasn't open so I got busted there but Brian Head was still pretty neat to see. At 9,500 feet, it's no joke of a mountain town. I had no idea that this kind of high altitude resort existed in Southern Utah.
