Spring time in the Grand Valley

It is full on here in the Grand Valley. Every spring, every mountain biker, runner, hiker and camping enthusiast from around the state and Utah flock to the Grand Junction/Fruita area to get a taste of our early summer like weather. The trails are dry, the days warm and nights are cool.

I got to spend this last weekend with the Honey Stinger mountain bike team at their annual spring team camp. I have been joining the crew now for four years, and every year is a blast. New and old friends get together for a weekend of camping and riding bikes. Here is a small taste of what we got ourselves into this last weekend.
