Behind The Reef Trail in the San Rafael Swell 3/25/2015

On Wed the 25th a bunch of us hit Behind The Reef in the San Rafael Swell.

The trailhead is about 100 miles east of my home on I-70. We met in Richfield at 7:00 AM and I got home just after 9:00 PM.
I put 96.6 miles on my Brute and it drank a lot of gas. I added fuel long before anyone else did.

There was a 2009 AC 400 that gets on the average over 20 mpg and it has a 7 gallon gas tank. That would be
awesome to have that kind of range but what a price to have to pay.

Here's just a few pictures from the ride. The San Rafael Swell is truly an awesome place to ride.




Crossing under I-70 just after departing the trailhead.


One of a few arches we got to see along the trails.




One awesome trail


They drove rebar into the ground so the could stack rocks to build the trail on this shelf.


I was surprised that this AC didn't have more flex or travel in the suspension.
Hard to see in the shade but the left front tire was about 12" off the ground.
The tire was not touching the rock along side of the trail.



once on top the trail was pretty cool - too bad it wasn't longer but riding on the shelf was fun.


Time for a break and to let everyone regroup.





It was a great ride for sure.

I would guess that's better than the Swell hitting me.

It's amazing how the different climates effect structures. Without maintenance that shack would have rotted 40 years later into a pile of mulch and nails out here.
