Loaded up the 4Runner, hopped on I-80, and drove 650 miles across an edge-of-your-seat-landscape otherwise known as Nevada. Destination: Zion…aka Deseret….aka Utah….aka home. Utah has captivated me my whole life; I’ve loved it through every phase. So many memories there; which is why it’s so awesome to keep making new ones. So good seeing family and keeping those relationships healthy. Long time buddy TJ introduced me to mtn biking… on a trail system we used to ride 4-wheelers on as kids. Alisha took me paddle boarding on a lake in the Uintas my Uncle used to take us camping at during summer trips out West. Then she blew my mind (and my left ventricle) on a couple bike rides that zig-zagged up and down through Park City Mountain Resort. Mountain biking is a whole new world I can’t wait to explore….scary as hell too. No matter where I was or what the activity, I was surrounded by beauty. The inside joke of the trip was “So beautiful I wanna barf!”.
