After camping last nite in Kanab, we woke up and took to the road. It took only 45 miles get to Zion National Park. Before entering into the park we descented into a 4 mile run. We were going 40 miles per hour while Andi filmed the descent with one hand on the handlebar. It was pretty dangerous but Andi got some great footage. (Anything for the shot he said)
As we biked into Zion National Park we met with other cyclist. Its great meeting people from the around the country who were enduring the same things we were. After the short talks we decided to head to lunch. Luckily Ted (cowboy Ted as we like to refer)paid for our food. The restaurant speciality was buffalo. Delicious!
The waiter was exceptionally nice after hearing why we were riding. James shared with us his story about moving into Utah as a college student. He wanted a life of adventure. He also gave us $30 and offered to give us a free breakfast the next morning. What a great guy! A taste of the kind of people we have been meeting along the way.
Biking into Zion National Park was breathtaking! The mountains that surrond the park are majestic. There are 2 million visitors that come to Zion each year and we were privilage to be among them.
Staring up and the stars tonite by the campfire we have built I can't help but be thankful for all the people we have met and the friends we have made. I realize that even with the beauty of nature it doesn't compare to whats really important.
It's all about people.
