Moving towards Moab

The next morning, I was rewarded with a great view from my tent

and narrowly avoided the pink spiky cactus just outside!

Riding back down the slope, I came out onto a trail that was beginning to look like it might actually lead somewhere, still no sign of anybody else.

Some amazing landscapes and rock formations, I love rides like this

Even a bit of a river crossing-

The trail was a bit better than it was last night, I was off the tight narrow mountain tracks and in to the bowl of the valley

I started to see telegraph poles and realized this must lead to civilization and potentially a hot cup of tea!
