Munich

We did a Fat Tire Bike tour of Munich, Germany, and then got out of the city the morning Oktoberfest started.

I probably picked traditional German music from the wrong region, but oh well.

Stonehenge and Windsor

I’m starting to convince my co-workers that business trips are better if you go out and see the sights rather than work in the hotel between meetings. We arranged for a jet-lagged visit to Stonehenge and toured Windsor Castle.

Windsor is next to Eton, home to Eton College, founded in 1440 by King Henry VI. I took a picture of the Eton Walk and decided to try it out one afternoon.

Eton Walkway sign

It was much longer than I expected, and the northern section takes you through some fairly sketchy underpasses where no one could hear you scream, but overall it was a nice jaunt. Would have been better on a bike.

Zion National Park (again)

One of our favorite places on earth is Zion National Park in southern Utah. We went down over Labor Day and had a great time biking nearby Wire Mesa Loop as well as Zion Canyon with a quick tour of The Narrows to break things up.
