Gooseberry Mesa May 30th 2003
We've heard about it. We've seen the picture of it. Now we had to experience it. Gooseberry Mesa. Somewhere in South Western Utah near a little town called Hurricane down a road, take a left go up the road take another left at the cattle guard, find a place to camp, then ride. ok.
First we had to get there. We took Scenic Hwy 12. I can never get tired of this drive!

Gotta love those American Roads!
Once on Gooseberry Mesa Gary guided us through the maze of bowls and ledges. Aided fortunately by the white dots...
What you can ride down! You can also ride up!
It's also a nice place to just hang out. Lisa and Sharon.
Unless your Rigid Markus wanting to impress everyone with his style and grace!
