The Great UtahMountainBiking Treasure Hunt #2

Each set of clues goes to a link hidden on a photo, somewhere within the (over 500) pages on's web site. When you click on the link, you'll see a page that gives you the "Treasure" to fill in the blank. We suggest you print the page, then go to work. When this treasure hunt was first posted, the first to email a list of all 13 treasures won a copy of the 379-page book "Mountain Bike America Moab" by Lee Bridgers. Now it's just for fun.
