Weekend Escape To The Desert

Thursday, May 05, 2011

I left Steamboat Springs on Friday morning and it was snowing. Again. Since the ski mountain had been closed for a few weeks already, I was tired of the winter weather and was very happy to be headed to sunny Moab for a long weekend with friends. Moab is about a 5 hour drive from Steamboat so it makes a nice getaway trip. I haven’t been to Moab for several years, and now that I have a 1 year old son, this trip was more mellow. Instead of riding several biking trails and camping, I rode 1 trail, jogged a few times with the stroller and slept at a nice house downtown, complete with a beautiful yard and hot tub. (Thanks Cam!) We had a great time, and on the way home, we stopped at Fisher Towers for a quick family hike. Coincidentally, right as we were approaching the base of a tower, we heard noises from above. We looked up and saw a figure leaning over the top, then she waved at us, and then she JUMPED! These photos show a young woman, a school teacher named Christy, that rock climbed up the tower, and then topped that off with a base jump. So even though it was a mellow trip, I still got quite a thrill watching her glide right above us. It was the perfect ending to our long weekend.
