America's Top Mountain Bike Trek

Perched on the highest spot on Moab's Porcupine Rim Trail, High Anxiety Point

"We'd just gotten up to High Anxiety Point. While you are climbing up, you can't see anything except the hill above you. All of a sudden it just stops and there's Castle Valley. The valley stretches out in both directions, bordered by the La Sal Mountains and the Colorado River."

—Photographer Steve Casimiro
