Moab/Fruita/Grand junction Day 4

After the P. Rim ride we arrived back at camp to find a older guy and his dog at the site next to ours. This could go either way I was thinking. Turns out George was from Canada and an awesome guy. Big time canoeist and pro photographer.

He was waiting for his wife to return from a multi day canoe trip. He was having some back or knee problems. I forget which. We talked with him quite a bit and then the morning of day 4, packed up ( poorly) and headed for Colorado. We saw a crazy accident on the 191. Looked like someone lost a bunch of stuff from a trailer or something. Once in Colorado we met up with the Mighty Rollo and his Wife Debroah. Good to see him again. We rode the Western Rim trail in Rabbit Valley which is a cool 20 mile ride. Jamie had a bad Alpo sandwich from Subway and was feeling poorly for half of the ride , but eating at a subway in Moab will do that to you. The Western Rim has a moxture of Rocky/Sandy dbl track and edge of the canyon single track. It finishes with and old stage coach road above the singletrack and finally to the kokopelli pack to the parking area. I was smoked after that so we headed to Fruita for camp and Mexican food.

We found both.
