Dale Ball South+Solstice hike
Got in a ride a few weeks ago before the snow set in and it got cold as Balls. I hooked up with Rob for a ride starting from St. Johns parking lot. We the went up to the Dale Ball South trail just above Dorothy Stewart trail head. We then went in there and had a fun ride all around the south side trails and hit Pacacho for good measure. Then we came down to upper canyon and went down to Dorothy Stewart and took that back to wilderness gate and then descended the bottom of Atalaya. Had a fun time over there. I think Rob enjoyed it.
On the winter solstice Chad and I went for a hike up Atalaya in the snow. It was the first time I have hiked Atalaya(without a bike) Had a real good time. Hope to do some more of that. I took my new pack and some snowshoes just to get ready for some hiking with the snowboard.

I don't know why I like taking pictures of trail signage

Nice views of the watershed
That was the last ride I had on dirt with no snow on it.After a couple weeks off the bike I couldn't take it anymore. So yesterday I went riding with the los Nativos and Todd and we rode some new trail called the Sphinx trail. It is a new trail that was much fun.
Last week I went on my first hike up Atalaya with Todd and It was really fun. It gave me a good workout in the snow. We took a few pictures.
The snow was starting to get deeper
Does it get any better then this?

There is something about trains
What holiday beverages did you all have? Had a nice beefy christmas ale from Avery for the holidays. It was tasty.
What is in your audio player? I am getting all old school thanks to Scott at work I am rocking out to The Circle Jerks: Golden Shower of Hits. I loved this album as a young punk skater. Brings back all sorts of fond memories.
Happy New Year Everybody
