So the plan was to sort of ease into summer vacation.
But today I plunged.
It started at 6 AM at Pat's for manual'ing practice.
|6:40 AM -- on the way home from Pat's. Empty coffee pot.|
|Standard shadow pic.|
Required by the genre once a biennium.
So I emailed Glen with a generous time frame hoping he would figure out a way to spare a couple of hours in the middle of his busy work day. His reply to my email: "Be here at 10 with supplies for alpine adventure."
Verily. We went to Mt Spokane.
|Typical ride: about 2 hours of climbing and 25 minutes of descending.|
But that descending was so good. Trail 140 to be precise.
|I discovered that my phone has two camera lenses. One is for self-portraits.|
|Faster furiouser funner descending is really a function of brakes.|
I've not carried on nearly enough about how much these brakes rule. They're SLX hydro.
|I think this is the top of Day Mountain. But it might be Kit Carson.|
Reminds me of Kettle Crest.
Which I'll be hitting soon.
|Top of the fun part.|
