sawmill

after lunch, 4 of us fueled up and rode to sawmill. the elevation there is about 6K, so the air temp was a little more pleasant than rowher and tule.

the trail was rough, lots of rocks, ruts, and deep dirt powder (worse than sand).

now being a smaller group, we were moving most of the time. only chance to take pic was when we had our 1 and only break.



place was dry, but brown is a beautiful color

i didn't crash, but found my left mirror missing....



end of the trail where it meets old ridge road



no gas at 3 points



stopped at the gas station on spunky and san francisquito for some cold refreshment

on the way back, instead of taking the pavement via vazquez, we decided to do one more dirt section.

rode up from the back side of rowher







rowher is a huge place...enough trails for all skill levels




big bikes conquering the single track







fmfpunk coming out of the trail



on our way out of rowher



an obligatory homage to the "virgin mary's miracle of the tree" on sierra ave



dennis looking at a different virgin...



soon marty will be one of us...




marty and i stuck together and rode back via little T on our way home




after we split, i grabbed a cold drink as my reward for a good day of riding




this sums up my day




and this...



and more; all lugs were used on this ride.....




happy to be home with a nice evening temp





thanks again to all 13 people who joined us who could not find an excuse to stay home.... . glad to hear most had a great time; good riding and we did it again....

Now that is a complete ride report! Great job, Joel.
I saw you doing those blind over the shoulder shots while riding and I see you got some really good results. I'd like to get some tips on how to carry and handle the camera while moving.

la/oc boys who want to hook up in mammoth, you may want to post up here what's your plan.

i'm not sure if i can take friday off...my boss hasn't approved my request.

for sho, i will ride saturday...where ???? but prefer to ride the higher elevations towards june lake.

sunday is a definite wmrs via silver canyon and down on wyman creek. did both of them last year and it was awesome. then, turn around and do the reverse, back to my truck that will be parked at laws (bishop)

I think we saw you guys regrouping at the Rowher Flats staging area right as we were leaving. I would have stopped by and said hello, but I was doing my best not to fall over, especially in front of a group! Cool pics . . . hope to ride with you guys soon!

Joel,

You were looking awful sick on Saturday. I bet you are feeling each worse each day. Probably too sick to work on Friday. I'll swear to it.

All you need is "quick clot" stops the blleding until you can get help.

Here a link for you. http://www.z-medica.com/

I carry it on all my vehicles. No thanks are necessary.
