How to ride in Snow

Dad says he had never ridden in snow. He says snow ain't too bad when it is soft - you just blast through the drifts. When the show gets deeper , and it is frozen, you have to try to stay on top. Dad says knowing this didn't help much. He still got stuck. There ain't much snow to practice in in South Carolina.

I just love any report that features MOAB in it. It is definitely one of my dream destinations.

Cheers from Down Under!

Lockhart Basin Trail

The Lockhart Basin Trail show up really well on Google Earth. I marked the route with waypoints on the attached file. The file is a .gpx file made in GPSU so it should open in a lot of different map programs. I like to click on the link, open with Google Earth, and then zoom in where i can see the features of the trail.


This picture from Google Earth shows the north end of the trail. The picture below was taken from the waypoint marked as "picture taken") looking towards the bottom of the google image.

Dad turned 60 this week. The birthday had him reminiscing about some of the things he has done. This week is right at the top when grading his bestest rides ever!
