The Pipe Dream trail! Thank you Jeff Fink and all those who worked so hard to make this happen. Turn off Kane Creek Dr. onto Aspen Ave. and go 'til it ends at Mountain View Dr. You'll see the sign and a bridge. Climb to the T, try out both directions.
An elite team of expert trail builders gather in the pre-dawn hours to discuss the strategy of their upcoming day of sweat and toil. Quite some time later, these goofballs show up.
Beth and Nancy place the goal posts in thier final position, for the new mountain bike bowling lane. Shawn will use spit, blood and dirt to make a sticky paste to hold them in place. No one told them that they ain't no goal posts in this sport... except for The Notch.
Tracy, using what she is told is a specially crafted shovel, prepares to dig holes for the support posts for the new retaining wall at The Notch. (Please, nobody tell her it was a broom. She worked oh so hard!)
Nancy, trims off a very pointy branch aiming right for your eye. She knows that your shades would have been no match for this branch's pointiness! Too bad she didn't have a broom.
Jeff, Steve and Jeff work on the retaining wall at The Notch on Lower Porcupine Singletrack. Its addition will take this section from "OMG! I'm going to die!" to "The new hospital looks great!"
Geoff and another one of Moab's super strength citizens push two rocks apart to make a better exit from a narrow trail.
Sandy uses an ancient trail restoration tool to clear tracks from illegal travel.
A group of intrepid riders wait for a sign to tell them when they should ride the new mountain bike trail at Dead Horse Point State Park. (The sign was there, but it only told them where to ride, not when. Sorry for the mix up y'all.)
A group calling themselves "The Groomin' Group of Doom" head out to the Fisher Tower Trail to do, what I'd gather, is some serious work.
Kara and Krissy humor Kim when she says, "Dang! It sure is snowy over yonder." Kara says, "It's only the next picture Kim."
Even when being chased by an angry bear, apparently with a camera, the trail groomers continue to work, knowing that really great ski trails are worth the sacrifice.
Audrey, followed by her ever-present entourage, rides the new Intrepid Trail at Dead Horse Point State Park.
Jeff uses a wire brush and sweat to remove stripes on an illegal trail in Arches National Park. Jeff is a calm guy, but he may consider using the same tool to remove the people responsible for the stripes.
Jeff, Rita and Geoff using sheer will power move the entire bank of soil and plants a foot away from the pave path to keep it safe from runners and cyclists.
