Our last day here in Moab, couldn't leave without going into Arches. So off we went on our road bikes. Left in the morning, had a hint of coolness in the air, cloud cover with a nice breeze. We where hoping it would stay with us all day.
There is a bike trail system here that goes from Moab to the park entrance and beyond. It crosses the Colorado River on the Colorado River Pedestrian Bridge (needs a better name! )
Here are some photos from our day.

|The Long and Winding Road|
|Jim riding that long and winding road...|
|Three Gossips, Sheep Rock, Tower of Babel|
|Delicate Arch (sadly we couldn't get closer, bike shoes not the best for climbing slick rock)|
|Jim at one of the many vista points|
|They say there are BigHorn Sheep here... this was the only one we could find....|
|And always the best to come back to this sweet boy!|
So those clouds and cool breeze I was talking about earlier...? Didn't last. The clouds parted enough for the strong sun to bear down on us, and that nice breeze turned into gale force winds.
A special thanks to the two women who gave us water to top off our waterbottles!
Tomorrow morning we leave here and head towards home. Will take us a couple days to get there. Not sure what fun exciting things we'll see but if we see them, so will you here :-)
