The Moab Electric Light Parade

Each December, Moab has an electric light parade. People come up with some pretty creative floats. Others put a few lights on their business truck and call it good. Generally, the float involves a whole bunch of kids on a trailer, a truck, a noisy generator and strings of electric lights. Of course, as in any parade in Moab there are always a few farm tractors. Lots of gasoline is burned in the trucks and generators. However, some of the floats are human powered and silently glide by, with one or two people furiously pedalling some kind of home made contraption. The bottom photo is not a great photograph, and I apologize, but it depicts a woman on a bicycle and you will have to take my word for that. Click to enlarge.
