2 Years in Santa Fe

Ella was enjoying our trip to Jemez Springs

    What a 2 years it has been. The rides have been bountiful and I feel like I am just starting to get to know some of them. There are sooo many more to ride.Cochiti is prolly my favorite local area soo far. I definitly have to get into Colorado more often. Salida was a highlight fo sho. Really want to hit Crested Butte and Durango and Fruita. Then there are all the trails in Arizona and Utah. WOW too many to think of. Heading up to Taos this weekend to attempt the Double Boundary Race put on by endurance maniac Matt. Should be a good time no matter what happens. I am meeting BoulderBill who is coming down to ride some fine New Mexican trailage for the first time. Did a fun ride with Jeff the other day up to Atalaya and over to the Dale Ball South trails had a fine time and i snapped a few shots. Jeff was rocking a fine Coconino.

Isn't she lovely

This guy was even interested in Jeffs Coconino

This section is a nice respite from the climb

Then it was on to the Dale Ball South

    The nights here are starting to get chilly. Really good sleeping weather.Up in Taos this weekend We might get to see some aspens turning gold. Love the way the trail becomes blanketed in the fallen aspen leaves.

Shiprock the namesake of the road we live on

   What do you all think of this Sierra Nevada Anniversary ale. I found it to be pretty good. On my 2nd sixer

   What is in your audio player? I have Old Crow Medicine Show in mine.It is there self titled album. GoatHawk at work hooked me up with it and I have been playing it a lot. I enjoy some bluegrass every now and again.
   All right see you all in Taos for either the Double Boundary or Frazier Mountain Madness. Let's meet at Eskes
