Stream crossing before BB Hill



I'd say 1/2-3/4 mile of this going up to the lake. That was pretty intense. A lot of hits on the drivetrain, but luckily the rocks were small enough they didn't cause any damage.


A whole lot of this. You're tooling along, then go from 3 miles an hour to....Oooff! Back up and change your line a little bit.


Wipe that grin off your face Mr. Flex!


Pretty sure Scott was on the rock that both Arlo and I got denied on. Water running down that hill made what should have been easy up-and-overs impassable with open diffs


Arlo and I frontiered this one. We had the line picked perfectly by the time Froggo came up. Fairly heavy water flow, and a lot of exposed dirt, so it was a bit muddy. Took a couple of tries for both Ryan and me. As soon as I got up and around the rock that Ryan was flexed on, I just had to stay on the gas while the momentum was still there. Moderate tire spin, but not too bad.


Loads of wildflowers. Mr. Rain has been very good to the area, as well as having the stream flowing through it. Blue Bells are one of my favorites


Really like these though. I'm not used to seeing them as vivid as they were up there.

Mirror shots are like...cool and stuff


Da Big Red Jeeps


Sooo cool watching the clouds curl over the ridges.


Maybe 2 puddles smooth enough for this. The rest had "surprises" under the surface

This was one of the best trails that we have run. Good to meet all of you, some for the first time, some once again. We are working to try and recover the videos from the trashed hard drive on our video camera. We will post anything that we salvage.

Later,

Don
