Forgotten Rides

   If you find yourself in San Fran hit up some Blue Bottle Coffee.They do it for the LOVE and you can tell.

   There are rides that happen and then are forgotten. well at least in a pixel sense. The last time I hit South Boundary was one such ride. I forgot all about the pictures I snapped till I was looking through the pictures folder. It was a great day up there. Mark and I drove the 240 up to Taos to meet Dominic and Matt at The Bean. Got myself a Cubano and I was ready to roll. We drove the vehicles up to Valle Escondido and parked and road up to Quintana Pass. Last time I rode this I went with Bill and Jessica and we met Greg up there. We left cars there at the Valle again but Jessica and I dropped off at Garcia park and descended a blaster back to the cars. This time I got to ride the bottom part of the South Boundary and loved every minute of it. Also this time we didn't lose our way because we weren't with Greg de Taos to get us lost. ;) With a name like that you would think he would know the trails.

The climb up from Valle Escondido is a good stretch.

A nice break at Quintana pass

Mark and I came into this lovely patch of wild strawberries. They were tasty as a muv.

Matt all a blur. This was the last time I would see him and Dom as they decided to blast the rest of the way down.

It started to rain a little bit and the clouds were building as we descended to Taos.
IT was a great ride. We ripped it pretty quick. Then afterwards we stopped by Quadalajara grill for some dank mexi.

I love this place. Can't wait to get back there.

Then Mark and I stopped along the Rio Grande to give thanks to the Bountiful Trails that we have here.

Anthony took these pictures on the Winsor the other day, and I decidedd to Photochop them.

    What is in your audio player? I have Six Parts Seven album Casually Smashed To Pieces in mine.
