Dale Ballin' It
The time is now. The Dale Ball is calling you. As the snow receeds was are now able to hit Dale Balls Trails. It has been to long of a winter and as i write this more snow is sitting on our yard. I am trying to get some good rides in before the Dawn til Dusk race coming up in 2 weeks. I am doing duo SS with a guy from work. I have never ridden in Gallup but the pictures i have seen from the race look like it is gonna be good fun. Anyone else heading there? Todd and i went out last weekend for a ride up to Picacho peak. Dale Ball is a great starting ride for visitors to Santa Fe because you could ride them from town and they are a little lower then most of the other rides.Which means you can acclimate to 7000 ft. Soo come on out and enjoy SANTA FE.

Todd wanted to hike to this nice view.
Then we hiked up to the beautiful views of Picacho Peak.
Ray and I did a fine ride a couple of weeks ago on the Dale Ball North trail. It was fun but a little muddy
This is Ray's 29er
This is a great rockchair on the Dale Ball North trails that has a great view of the sunsets.
Got home from the ride with Todd and popped a growler of 2nd st. IPA
What is in your audio player? I have the new Clutch album From Beale Street to Oblivion in mine. It is really good. Good ol rocking music with a Maryland connection.
I hope everyone is out doin what they do best.
I will leave you with a un-altered Sunset shot from the front door.
