A view from the top of La Espina Hill east towards the Franklin Mountains. The Suicide Drop is to the left, La Espina is to the right. Mayberry, Broke Back, Little Moab West and even Transmountain Summit are all visible in the distance. It's hard to capture the variety of the foothills here.

A short bridge for cyclists on Mayberry. The slats are far apart, so it's better to take the trail around instead.

Jumps for cyclists, or really fast runners, brave enough to descend the La Espina Suicide Drop.
