ok, so i'm trying to work out the exact details for my upcoming MTB trip in the Rockies. it's kind of a juggle as i'm trying to mix many things:
want to visit:
Denver, Boulder, Fort Colins CO
Salt Lake, Moab, UT
(maybe) Flagstaff AZ
(maybe) Sante Fe MN
+ main goal is to do lots of technical mountain biking in CO, UT, AZ, NM (definitely Moab)
(my secondary goal is to scout some cities for potential return to the US - mainly Boulder, Fort Colins, Salt Lake)
ok, so here's my main question:
is May too early? (because of snow and colder temperatures?)
May/beginning June just works really well, because my sister and parents will be able to visit the week of Memorial Day (May 30th) so the 1st week of June AND there are 3 German holidays during May so i have to take less vacation.
+ i've already got some stuff planned for the end of June, July, etc and would have to shuffle a lot of stuff around
or should i try starting end of May and all of June??
or should i forget meeting the Memorial Day thing and shoot for July?
