Off-topic: One more reason to move from the Valley

First-person descent down Utah's Bobsled. What a great ride!

You're stuck in wall-to-wall traffic and home prices that you cannot hope to afford your home (even, apparently, if you're a millionaire). Why not move out to Utah? The grass isn't greener, but the mountain biking trails are awesome.

Here's a glimpse of my favorite: The Bobsled. I rode it this morning with my helmet cam on. Sheer bliss.

Life doesn't get much better than living 20 minutes from world-class skiing and five minutes from excellent mountain-biking trails. Come out to visit.
