Couple pics from our Fruita trip

We got to test out the new awning lights, the Pit-2-Go, and my buddy's fancy camera with long exposure. Fun trip!

The pit to go looks like an improvement on my pit. An old washing machine tub. They radiate heat like nobody's business and burn clean.Plus a grill fits right on top.
Nice pics, I think i'll go riding today.

Yeah I like the night pit with the fire. I've heard that the washing machine tubs are getting scarce as washers are being made with plastic drums...

Hey there,
If you take the Fruita exit.
Go north across I70 and continue through the stop sign to Ottley
(to get to old town Fruita turn R at stop sign)
Right on Ottley to 18 1/2 rd
Left on 18 1/2 rd and stay on it all the way to your destination (8 miles?)
18 1/2 eventually turns to 18rd and switches to dirt
Parking lot/trailhead on left, campground a bit further north
Check out www.gjmountainbiking.com for trail maps & descriptions
Josh

Isn't there a short eastbound jog in there? Named "N 5/8"s Rd or similar?

Yea, there is an 18 5/8 or somthing like that. But if you stay on the path of least resistance you'll get there.
It's all measured from the border of the Zion Curtain.
