Cedar Breaks single track.

With a long over due desire and a recent change in weekend plans, we finally made it to the Brianhead/ Cedar Breaks area to ride the pedal bikes. We chose to camp up by Navajo Lake to stay close to trails and as a great in between spot nestled in the peaking aspens. Here's what we found.
 One of the uncrowded overlooks at Cedar Breaks and a glimpse to the distant Blowhard trail by the small dot atop the distant peak (Blowhard mountain).
 Yes, it is still Milkyway season and the wind finally let up enough to shoot a few exposures looking straight south towards Navajo Lake.
 The landscape around the lake was reminiscent of Bend Oregon and the Mckenzie River sections with lava.
Lichen covered lava was only on the east end of the lake and made for a cool start to our loop up to the Virgin Rim trail.
 Insert postcard title here "               ". wish you were here! Looking south towards Zion National park.
Hard to tell just how windy it was, but that was as close to the edge as I felt confident with.
Although we did not ride the Blowhard trail together, I chose to hike up from the parking to get one shot of Amy descending the last fun narrow canyon section before the drive back.
Since we only rode the Blowhard trail on our last day, we thought a hot lap in Cedar City on the Boulder dash and Lava flow trails would be appropriate. Look at my wife slaying this section of Boulder Dash.
Both the drive there and back provided amazing displays of Gods craftsmanship in the sky.
