Moab Mountain Biking
A bunch of us hard core mountain bikers shipped out gear out to Moab for a few days of grueling hill climbing (and wipe outs).  Upon arrival, we did a short training ride, during which 8 of 11 of us drew blood.  That doesn't paint a pretty picture for the rest of the trip!

The Arch
Walking across the arch (1500 foot drop) was pretty frightening.  We weren't crazy enough to ride across this.
