Sitting here watching Into The Wild.
Just got back from Gallup, New Mexico for the Dawn till Dusk race. More on that later.
Cochiti is one of the most beautful places I have been to. It is just real natural and peaceful. The trails kick ass as well. In preperation for the race I thought some rides there were in order. The higher up stuff there is still snowed in. Brian and I met Anthony and DeathRay out at the apple orchard and went for a lovely ride up medio dia then to the saddle where we tried venture up to the beaver pond but were rebuffed before long with heavy snow on the trail. We went back down to the saddle and decided to take Horn Mesa which is an out and back of about 4 miles. We got some great shots from the ride. I had my camera and Anthony had his as well. I also went back out there the next weekend with Brian and we did Bland canyon up to the saddle and descended medio dia so there will be a couple pictures from that ride as well.

After the saddle we tried to climb up to beaver ponds and we started to hit snow like this. So we turned around and decided to do the out and back along Horn Mesa.
this angle is nice
This angle is nice as well.
Ray was rocking a SS this day.

A few pics from a ride with Brian a week later when we took Bland up this time
the road up Bland Canyon is very scenic.
Sandias chillin in the backround
I have been digging my new grips. Grab yourself some ESI grips and you won't be disappointed.
Ben at work sent me a pic of this bike the other day. I don't think you could even get 2 fingers on there.
I wonder if the Outlaw and his merry band of off road fixter hipsters rock their bars like those.
What is in your audio player? I have the new Gnarls Barkley in mine. I have been digging on it. It has an old soulful feel to it mixed in with a really new electronic feel. love it when peeps mix things up.
I hope everyone is enjoying there spring.
