Fell walking across the ice trying to get a better shot and get out of the way. My bike did hit the ground but I had run out of storage on my SD Card.

initial thought was tule, then i looked at the topo, it's about 3 to 4K, which has higher elevation than indian canyon at 3K feet.

chances are, there will be ice and snow. and as far as sawmill, that's much higher elevation, and like javier said, there's snow.

looks like this weekend we're pretty much stuck watching videos.

i may take the gs for a road ride, if anyone will be interested, let me know. maybe meet around 9am.

I rode around Lytle creek today. Lots of dirt w/ no snow. You can't go very far, relative to what rides you're used to, but you can do loops. Think i'll get out tomorrow sometime.
