Saturday was THE day - clear, cool, moist soil (still a little dusty for the noob in the back - me!). way too much fun riding on snow and the creek bed later in the day. I'm glad we took Rob's suggestion of going up the canyon. I never knew any of that was up there. Thanks for leading the ride, Matt!
I'm not finding the insert photo button on this thread-reply page, so if someone can point me to it I'll upload some photos.
