Time to escape the Vegas heat and seek higher elevation!
Anna and I headed up to Kolob Reservoir last weekend to get away and enjoy a little outdoors.
We made our way up the hill to Kolob. It’s a very scenic stretch of road that dips into Zion a couple times. We were loaded up with our canoe, mountain bikes and little Super Sherpa 250cc motorcycle.

|In the campground and maybe some spots along the water for a small RV.|

We scored an awesome spot on the water.
After camp was set up, we did a little canoeing and exploring.
We found an old collapsed cabin in one of the coves so we stopped and checked it out.
We rode around the area a little bit.
We made a fire and chilled.
Then I took some nature pics & watched the reflections in the water as the sun went down.
Anna found a bouncy log
This was our morning view.
The Aspens lit up as the sun hit them.
Made some coffee and enjoyed the peaceful morning.
Here’s a little taste of our relaxing weekend. Turn that volume up and enjoy the awesome sounds of nature.
On our way back we found some goldfish that were mating
Passing through a section of Zion National Park.
On the way home, I managed to squeeze in a little MTB action near Virgin, Utah. The Hurricane Rim Trail was really cool.
It was a bit warm after the 10.6 mile ride, so I cooled off in the Virgin River. It felt amazing!
