I did some light trail riding today up near Mt Charlston. It was pretty cool only being able to see 100 yards in any direction. It started getting slick up in the snow so I turned it around and called it a day. Sorry, no pics.

I might be heading up there tomorrow just for the hell of it, throw a snow ball or two, then come back down.

It feels all awkward to me, being 50 degrees and rainy on christmas...no snow on the ground...

I was at Potato ridge last saturday during the rain.We were hoping for snow but wasnt cold enough but foggy as heck tho,it was really cool .

We went thru the harder areas and it was waaay more difficult with the slippery rocks.We used our winches more that day than the past year.

I ended up rolling the beast up mt charleston just to see some snow. It was a nice trip. Took my girls dad and her little brother. We had fun.

Jeep didnt like the 6000+ elevation gain though.

I'll give you a tentative yes for Sunday, as long as it's not an all-day run (i.e., back around lunch)
