Riding the trails for a couple of days and then heading out to Utah for a couple of more days.
Any suggestions as where to go if a couple of days are raining or any good trails within driving? Any night life in the area?
Just trying to make my 8 to 10 days as fulfilling as possible.
Maybe we can meet some members out there in Aug.
I Live in grand junction which is probably 10-15 minutes away from Fruita, AT MOST. However, i haven't really hung out in fruita but driven through to get to trails and other such places. Check out the Grand Junction Visitors Page
and they should tell you somethings to do around here. But if it's raining slightly (like it was doing yesterday) go for a hike, i checked out the Devils Canyon, it was a GREAT hike in a GREAT area. There are a TON of trails around here so finding a new trail isn't a problem, pick up a map when you get here for a few bucks and it'll keep you good for awhile. There are hot springs around here, though NOT in the immediate area, you can hike up to the Mesa, go on the National Monument, go kayaking/canoeing. For night life, well heh, there are bars to goto, and if you look around you might be able to find some decent concerts to goto. You can always go on a night hike/ride, it's always fun to drive up the monument and look out over grand junction and fruita and it's all lit up. Anyways there's plenty to do here, maybe i'll ride with you when you come here, i'm from Rockford which is pretty near chicago
