...I've been out there at the end of April for the last 6 years have experienced tons of rain...
The saying, "April showers bring May flowers" comes to mind.. Maybe they say April because it rains more in April vs. March?
You really need to ride the San Rafael Swell for a day. It is a little higher in elevation so that could pose more problems.
Yes, we do! We used to desert race down there years ago and we'd look forward to riding it again.
