Lindsey and I had a big day out this weekend! We started the day with pancakes at the local fire department, went mountain biking to view a Poppy field, and wrapped up the day with a mural art walk. What a great way to spend the day!

Earlier this year, a massive restoration project was implemented to turn the somewhat random field of Poppies into an official Poppy Garden. It's so nice to see the city and its community members protect these beautiful flowers.

Keith has signed up for another gravel race πŸš΅β€β™‚οΈ πŸ₯‡

Keith has been training hard for his next gravel race! He signed up for the Dirty Dino Gravel Grinder in Vernal, UT next weekend. This gravel race will be quite different from the Salty Lizard 100 gravel race that he competed in last year. This race is much shorter at only 63 miles but it has a staggering 6500 ft of climbing, most of which occurs in the first 35 miles! Oh, and most of the course will be between 9000 and 10,000 ft of elevation. πŸ˜…

Keith is working on a series of posts from our Memorial Day weekend trip to Price, UT. Be sure to subscribe to our blog so that you don't miss out.

As for videos, we are probably not going to post any more skiing videos this summer. We will save a few of those to post as the next ski season approaches. Keith will be recording his gravel race and will share the video as soon as he is able to edit it.
