Talking todays ride

I had a nice ride today. rode the bike most of the day saturday so i thought i would check out the trails here after the flood on the atv. i will take ya on a short photo tour, but you can see them all and a video at my flickr site..

the trail starts out here, nice dark and cool ride most of the day....

then after a mile or so you hit the creek....(for the next few miles the creek is the trail)...


then its back to the trail to were the flood water was at. verry nasty and muddy..

it goes on for miles like this....

and alot of this !!! i had to use anouther route to try and get to the outher side of the lake. at this point it was one hell of a adventure.....

and that trail was blocked also !!!!

so at this point there was only one outher way to get to the lake, and its one hell of a rough ride.(last words of a redneck,"yall wach this") it got verr steep !....

and even steeper !

but i did after most of the day and alot of rideing and clymbing!!! i made it !

ok now i have to back home, rember the hill i went down! there is no way out but back up it !!!! this was fun ! that rock you see in the trail was a bitch !......time to check the tires and head home. the rest of the photos are on filckr if anyone wants to see...

That would have been last Saturday/Sunday, but I'm up for a repeat. It'd either be a really long day with very little stopping or an overnighter. But something tells me you're okay with longerrer rides .

Gimme an address near that road to look up on Google MAP, or a date/time when you guys are going to ride it and I'll get my street tires put back on my rims and come out there.
