Very nice. Makes me want to take up mountain biking. I've never been to Fruita area, but I drove from Glenwood Springs to Park City via Dinosaur, CO and Vernal, UT in February and saw similar high desert ranch country. It is fascinatingly different from the wet, woodsy and heavily populated environment we are used to along much of the East Coast. Must be fun for you to explore different areas.

Very, very nice! I have these delusions of taking a road trip to Fruita this summer with my brother. It's been on the radar for a while. Well...I have to choose between there and Crested Butte. Such different terrain/views from the typical EC root fest.

I was just dirtiking/mountain biking and camping in Rabbit Valley a few weeks ago! Actually stopped at Rabbit Valley on a trip back from Moab and returned to the same the following weekend... awesome information!

Fruita and moab are close enough that they both can easily be done on the same trip. Lots of trial going in at both areas. If in fruita and craving some mountain type aspen riding turkey flats up on glade park delivers without needing to go far. Also grand mesa has some fun stuff for variety.
