Late Summer 2011 Editor’s Note


editor’s note

Deer Crest Trail The late season snow has almost melted, and it’s finally prime biking season in Utah’s mountains. Escape hot valley temperatures and spend a day riding in our scenic canyons. I experienced Deer Valley’s lift-served mountain biking for the first time this summer, and the gorgeous Deer Crest trail is a must for intermediate riders. You’ll begin at the top of Bald Mountain and enjoy stunning views, thrilling singletrack and speedy downhill sections as you ride to the resort base. Get more information on Park City mountain biking in my summer getaway story on page 17.

Enjoy the rest of our Late Summer issue with stories on rowing the Grand Canyon’s Lava Falls (pg. 10), tips for healthy vegetarianism (pg. 16), great smartphone fitness apps (pg. 20) and camping along Utah’s scenic highways (pg. 12).
