Celebrate life ride
Celebrate life ride
Sadly Perry's younger brother pasted away a short time ago.
our best wishs go out to his family.

Most of the time the best way to celebrate life is to do the things you love
A weeken in the mtn's with great company and some of the best single track around
was the plan.

Thanks Perry

sat morning in camp

this is very fun

the trails where not dusty

the trail is in the middle of the pic

we regrouped and did the Celebrate life dance

more soon

I'm back with more
after a great warm up we rode what I though was the tuffest trail of the day
a very thin ribbon on the side of the mtn

this part had all white rocks

I love the trees in the fall and stopped to Celebrate the beauty

a small meadow with a little creek

We stopped to check the map and after a few very fun turn arounds we found our way

thanks again guy's
more soon

That is some gorgeous country! I've been in the Sierras as far south as the Dinky Creek area, but will have to go a little farther and ride that area.
